Registration Open for 2018 California Hospital Volunteer Leadership Conference

Registration is now open for the 2018 California Hospital Volunteer Leadership Conference, to be held Feb. 19-21, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach.

The conference theme — “Our Connections, Our Impact, Our Stories” —  focuses on the relationships that health care volunteers build, the lives they impact and the stories they have to tell. The intended audience is hospital volunteer leaders, volunteers, paid staff who manage volunteer programs, community partners and hospital inter-professional peers looking to expand their services through the use of volunteer programs.

Topics for learning experiences, activities and dialogue include advocacy, change, compliance, governance, health care delivery system redesign, marketing/social media, partnerships, self-care, social determinants of health and technology.

“Toolkit” workshops will cover care coordination/transition, community benefits, emergency services, fundraising, mental and behavioral health, patient experience, retail operations/gift and thrift shops, rural health care, volunteer management principles and workforce development.

Registration for attendees, sponsors and advertisers is available on the conference website, along with downloadable registration forms.
