Message From Your Region 6 Representatives | October 2018
Have you ever wanted to attend a HEALTHCON National Conference event but couldn’t because it was too far, too costly, or not the right time?
You do have another option to consider. Try attending a Regional Conference. They can be closer in proximity to you and the cost is less expensive than if you attended HEALTHCON National Conference. They are held in a much smaller venue and more intimate.
I recently attended the Regional Conference in Anaheim, CA. It was a great experience for me. I worked the registration desk, which enabled me to meet a lot of great members and national AAPC staff.
I was able to network during breakfast and lunch. I compared notes with other presenters as to what worked, what didn’t, and lessons learned. Did you know that most of the speakers are quite nervous before presenting? I thought I was the only one with butterflies in my stomach. As I watched them present, I was thinking they don’t look nervous at all. In fact, they look quite confident and comfortable.
I was also able to network with the other members, who are such a great, friendly, and smart group. I saw so many members helping others, especially the first-time attendees. You all are amazing. The first timers were filled with excitement and anticipation. I’m sure your experience lived up to your expectations, and I hope to see you back again next year.
