52nd Annual AHVRP Conference & Exposition
Aug. 22 - 25, 2020 | Denver
Eileen Pelletier, CAVS
2020 AHVRP President
Director of Volunteer Services
It is my pleasure to serve as Conference Chair for the 2020 AHVRP Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado. I have been attending AHVRP Conferences for many years and I have always felt refreshed, renewed and excited to bring home ideas to share. I feel we are in a unique position as we function very similar to a Human Resources Department but have the opportunity to work directly with the amazing volunteers who put the “care” into healthcare.
Many of us work in an environment where there isn’t another employee that truly understands the work we do. We can reach out to peers in our state to obtain support. Attending the national conference gives us the opportunity to expand that support system to individuals throughout the United States. My hope is that you will be able to join us in Denver to build on your own professional development. If you have never attended before, there is no time better than 2020. This is the year of focus – let’s focus on taking care of ourselves by attending an educational conference directed toward our profession.
The Annual Conference Planning Committee will be composed of volunteer resource professionals from across the United States. We will be working together to provide a conference with keynote speakers, concurrent sessions and networking opportunities. I hope to see you in Denver!/p>
