Don't look now, but LTC is closer than you think. 

The best way to ensure your chapter gets a good jump on the year is to make sure they have the knowledge and training they need to move forward confidently.

LTC will help your leaders understand your chapter's goals and the processes they must complete to meet them. We offer six tracks—president, president-elect, treasurer, program chair, membership chair, and newsletter chair. We strongly recommend that you send the volunteers who will assume these leadership positions in the coming year. If you are sending additional volunteers, consider sending people who may soon be stepping into one of these roles.

But there's more than book learning in our classrooms. During LTC, your team can attend educational and networking events that will allow them to learn from their peers and bring new skills, strategies, and successful practices back to your chapter. 

LTC is the place to be for ideas to energize, motivate, and develop your leadership team and to meet and work closely with volunteer leaders from the 68 chapters that make up HFMA.

How to Talk So All Your Members Will Listen (and How to Listen ...)

Leadership is more than moving your chapter to a passing score on the CBSC. That's not to say that the skills that take you from planning to implementation aren't crucial skills for any manager. They are essential, but softer leadership skills are important too. Skills like learning to listen and both recognizing and understanding the differences between the ways people approach their work and their life. 

This is the presentation chapter leaders have been asking for ever since that aha! moment at LTC several years ago when Cam Marston introduced us to the differences between the generations and why understanding how these different generations approach their work is a factor in the success or struggles of anyone who manages people.

Our half-day preconference session, "Leadership for Every Generation: Traditionalist, Baby Boomer, Generation X, Millennial," will be held Saturday, April 26 from 1-5 p.m. Cost is $99 per participant. And your'll earn 4 CPE credits! This precon has limited availability and is offered on a first come, first served basis. Don't wait. Register now.
