Convince Your Boss to Send You to Health Action 2017

Regina Wise

Health Action Events and Data Manager

Our annual Health Action conference is the premier event for health care advocates, enrollment workers, and policy wonks to come together to talk strategy. Our action-packed conference will be at the heart of the critical fight to defend the gains of the Affordable Care Act from being repealed. With the election of Donald Trump and a Republican Congress and Senate, this conference will be our most important yet as we prepare to defend millions of people from losing health coverage. 

Four reasons your boss should send you to Health Action 2017

If you’re committed to these goals, you should ask your boss to send you to Health Action 2017 – which will take place February 16-18, 2017 – in Washington, D.C. Use these four reasons to convince your boss to send you to this valuable conference. 

  1. We need to organize, not agonize”. Ron Pollack hit the nail on the head with this quote from Families USA’s post-election webinar. Now is the time to be proactive and energized so we can work together to create an agenda to defend the gains of the ACA. 
  2. Health Action 2017 is a professional networking opportunity you can’t pass up. Not only will you meet the brightest minds in enrollment, state and national advocacy, and health policy, you’ll be able to talk strategies with other organizations that can help in your efforts to protect health care access. 
  3. You’ll go back to work even more energized. After hearing from inspirational speakers, seeing other organizations’ campaigns, and participating in interactive workshops, you’ll remember why you do this work and why it’s so important to defend the ACA from repeal. 
  4. Your whole organization will benefit from your attendance at Health Action 2017. Because you’re going to take advantage of everything from outreach and advocacy trainings to social media and philanthropy strategies, you’ll be able to report back to your organization with innovative ideas and quickly adapt to the changing political landscape.
