2021: Bad news, good news

Bad news first. We postponed the 2021 HSSF Executive Conference until 2022.

COVID raised many barriers to attendance, including health systems' travel restrictions, individual's reluctance to travel, short staffing back at the home office, and a need for some support services leaders stay in the office to deal with the surge. We were also concerned about the risks of travel and gatherings to individuals and public health. Several participants cancelled their registrations, telling us it was time to make this move. We regret the inconveniences this caused.

Now the good news. UCLA Health has graciously offered to reschedule the event to sometime in 2022, date TBD. Norm Lantz, Senior Director, General Services, UCLA Health, and his team have an exciting in-person agenda ready to go, and it will no doubt be even better by the time we meet. More support services leaders will be able to attend. We'll be in touch when we know more about the specifics.
