Hello and welcome to Healthcare Businesswomen's Association (HBA) Atlanta chapter. We are really glad that you have visited our website and look forward to getting to know you.
We achieved numerous accomplishments in 2014 under the leadership of our immediate past president, Sharon Baldwin, and I am excited to continue the momentum by leading an award-winning HBA Atlanta chapter in 2015.
We are a diverse group of professional women in the healthcare industry and welcome you to explore the offerings and benefits of investing in the HBA. Whether you work in the healthcare delivery, payer, IT, pharmaceutical, biotech or device sectors, we have a place for you to connect, learn and grow. The HBA offers the opportunity to enhance your professional development through programming, mentoring, networking and volunteering.
In the Atlanta community, our chapter is recognized for its engaging programming and networking events as well as an excellent mentoring program. Our annual signature event, Woman in Healthcare Leadership Award, recognizes the accomplishments of outstanding women in the Atlanta metropolitan community.
This year, Atlanta is proud to host the global HBA Annual Conference on November 3-5. This is an inspiring, educational and motivational conference that focuses on leadership and career development. It brings together many top women (and men) in healthcare from across the world to share insights and provide networking opportunities.
To get the most out of your HBA experience, I encourage you to get involved in one of our committees. While the programming and mentoring programs are excellent on their own, volunteering is where you can really grow, further hone your leadership skills and develop strong relationships with a group of dynamic woman leaders. This network, who understands and thrives in both leadership and healthcare, can be an invaluable source of advice and support to assist you in achieving your career goals.
My hope is that you choose to make 2015 a year to personally invest in your professional development and fully leverage the benefits of the HBA Atlanta chapter.
I look forward to meeting you.
2015 president, HBA Atlanta chapter
