Conference 2020

Thank you to our 2020 sponsors!

March 20, 2020

Dear Colleagues,

I hope this finds you well and safe. This is a challenging time with very many unknowns. Washington Association Medical Staff Services (WAMSS) would like to invite you to participate in the virtual conference April 22-24, 2020. Please go to the WAMSS website to complete the online registration form https://www.wamss.org/annual-conference/annual-conference-2020-april-21-24-2020/.

The education is exceptional, and we are truly blessed to have such amazing Speakers that have transitioned without any hesitation to support WAMSS and our attendees by providing their presentations virtually. WAMSS is also thankful for our vendor partners and their sponsorship continuing to support WAMSS virtually.

As the Gatekeepers of Patient Safety, many of you are on the front lines and behind the scenes doing what you do best. WAMSS has also taken the opportunity to offer different options to attend the virtual conference. This will hopefully allow you to continue to be on hand at your job and help with your education needs. We hope that the virtual conference option works with your schedule and your budget.

WAMSS Annual Education Conferences are funded by the generous sponsors, job posting fees, membership dues, and conference registrations. WAMSS is very fortunate that so many individuals and organizations utilize WAMSS resources throughout the year to contribute to supporting the conference fund. WAMSS has researched other organizations virtual education prices and NAMSS Continuing Education (CE) Credit costs in order to continue to provide affordable education to WAMSS members.

This is an opportunity to earn NAMSS CE’s and learn from expert speakers in our field from the comfort of your office or home. Previously if you were planning to attend the conference in person there would have been travel, meals, and hotel costs and valuable time away from your job and home. Now is the time to take advantage of affordable and valuable education for yourself and your organization. Please remember to use the justification letter https://www.wamss.org/annual-conference/annual-conference-2020-april-21-24-2020/conference-justification-letter/ to support your request to attend the virtual conference.

If you are not a WAMSS member, please consider this option to join https://www.wamss.org/join-us/ now to take advantage of the many benefits available: discounted rates on conference, lending library, e-blasts, networking with other professionals in the field, continuous education opportunities, quarterly newsletter, leadership opportunities, and more!

This opportunity could not have been made possible without the many volunteers that contributed. Thank you for all that you do! WAMSS is privileged to have your support and leadership!

Respectfully,

Shannon Rochon, CPCS- WAMSS President
