3 Things We Learned at an HPN Meeting We Couldn’t Learn Anywhere Else
1. Our collaboratively crafted competencies are already making a real difference in real-world applications—promoting opportunity and diversity in Texas.
We’re passionate about competencies because we know they can make a real difference—better healthcare, less poverty, more diversity. Imagine a highly diverse group of kids graduating from high school with a healthcare credential for which they can earn a living wage. It’s really happening.
2. One HPN member increased their membership numbers for the first time in five years—in only ten months time. We learned how they did it.
HPN is an excellent resource to connect with and learn from staff, executives, or board members of other professional organizations in healthcare.
3. Atlantic City isn’t just a gambling destination any more! We were truly—and very pleasantly—surprised at what the new Atlantic City had to offer.
We get to know the cities we visit pretty intimately, and many times we are pleasantly surprised at excellent, new opportunities—whether it’s a city we thought we knew or one we’d never been to!
Learn something new at our next meeting. We just introduced six month memberships so you can join HPN at one meeting without paying for the whole year. We really think you’ll want to stay.
With organizations at all levels and in all stages of development, leaders have a chance to learn from each other—what works and what doesn’t in terms of supporting members, students, and credentialed professionals alike. Advocacy efforts can be enhanced through building upon others’ efforts. Together we can do more with less. Join the members of HPN to add significant advantages for your organization.
