DCPadillaCRT is proud to sponsor “Positioning for Success: What’s Next for Health Trade Associations,” a half-day event intended to bring health trade association professionals together to explore how to successfully navigate this brave new world. The event is being held in Washington, DC at the Grand Hyatt Washington on Thursday, November 20th from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

As government scrutiny and regulation increases for health care professionals, associations are faced with new challenges and opportunities to demonstrate value to their members. With featured speakers from The Advisory Board, The Kellen Company, Epstein Becker Green and our very own PadillaCRT, the event will provide insights on how to successfully navigate the ever-changing healthcare world. Attendees will walk away with tools to help shape their organization’s 2015 strategy, including:

  • New research and important trends
  • Insights into effective communication with legislators and regulators
  • Strategies to increase member engagement and retention
  • Risks that impact the reputation of the association and its members – and how to prepare
