Last week’s AMCHP Annual Conference was an amazing event: we had our highest number of registrations since 2000! If you did attend, thank you for coming and being part of the meeting. If you did not attend, not to worry – we’ll do it again in 2013 (save the dates Feb. 9-12)! Plus, all of the general sessions and many of the workshops will be archived online in just a few weeks.
With all the social media, e-mails and webinars that we use to stay in touch there still is nothing like being together in person to really connect us to each other and to our work. I hope you were as inspired and energized as I was from the general sessions, the workshops, the trainings, the exhibit hall…there was so much going on it was hard to keep track. I was particularly touched by the work of our awardees this year and impressed by that amazing set of maternal and child health (MCH) leaders. If you did attend, please do take time to evaluate the conference and tell us what we can do even better next year.
So, what’s next? I hope you take the learning from the conference and integrate it into your practice. We will be working on sharing the content of our sessions and posters online and following up on all the good ideas and best practices we heard about at the conference. I look forward to hearing about how you will use the information and resources you gathered back at home. Thank you again for making AMCHP 2012 a success!
