Exclusive Executive Education Series

GHA has produced an Executive Leadership Series opportunity to take the place of in-person meetings this summer. An exciting lineup of professional presenters is listed below. We are able to offer this for a very low registration fee because 30 other state hospital associations accepted our invitation, which resulted in extraordinary economies of scale for everyone. I hope you and your staff will take advantage of this experience. Click here to view the official brochure.

This series consists of six sessions over a four-month period. Each session is a 40-45 minute live or pre-recorded presentation followed by a live Q&A session for all. 

  • Every session is scheduled from 1-2 p.m. (ET). All programs will be held on Thursdays. 
  • GHA is happy to offer you this exclusive opportunity to purchase the whole series or to purchase individual programs of your choice.
  • The cost for the entire series is offered at a discounted rate of $375 per line.
