Saturday, June 24, 2017: 8:30 AM-12:30 PM
Farragut/Lafayette (Grand Hyatt Washington)
Participants will review and discuss 1) key areas of Board Governance including best practices for how to meet HRSA Requirements as outlined in the latest guidance (Draft Compliance Manual), and 2) strategies for how to build the best board possible. Session will include discussions and activities around processes for the recruitment and retention of quality board members, effectively engaging consumers, on-boarding new board members, improving effectiveness, and evaluating impact.

Session will allow participants from a variety of types of HCHs to connect with programs similar to theirs (i.e. public entities, stand-alone HCHs, larger CHC/HCHs) through implementation of group activities throughout the learning lab.
