Hospitals Encouraged to Send Volunteer Leaders to Upcoming Conference

CHA invites hospital volunteer leaders to attend the California Association of Hospitals and Health Systems (CAHHS) 2017 California Hospital Volunteer Leadership Conference, to be held Feb. 20-23 at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina in San Diego. Speakers at the conference will inspire volunteer leaders and encourage them to think differently about their role within the organizations they serve.

Today’s complex, challenging hospital environment demands “all hands on deck” — including volunteers. Trained, informed volunteer leaders enable hospitals to stretch their resources and improve the patient experience — as well as quality and safety — while reducing costs. The conference provides an  invaluable opportunity for volunteer leaders to network with their peers across the state for inspiration, information and higher-level thinking.

The CAHHS conference planning committee has extended personal invitations to all California hospital volunteer organizations, with the goal of recruiting representatives from each hospital. Registration is available exclusively online. To view the program and to register, visit
