Overview

In response to member requests, CHA is offering a special pre-assembly program for CEOs, sponsors and new and current board members about effective governance of Catholic health ministries. The program will focus on ministry sponsorship and governance. A highlight will be a discussion with authors of the recently published CHA book, Incarnate Grace: Perspectives on the Ministry of Catholic Health Care. The publication is a valuable resource for formation of boards and senior executive teams in Catholic health care.

The pre-assembly program will take place Saturday, June 9 from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., immediately prior to the start of the annual Catholic Health Assembly, June 10-12, at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina, in San Diego. The timing provides an ideal opportunity to attend both events in a premier hotel environment in breathtaking San Diego while saving time and money on travel expenses. 

In addition to clarifying the distinctive roles of governance and sponsorship, participants will examine principles of Catholic social teaching, building effective relationships with bishops, understanding key ethical principles and the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Services

There will also be great opportunities for networking and dialogue with fellow CEOs, board members, sponsors and colleagues. 

This program is open to CEOs, board members, executives and sponsors who attend the assembly as well as those who prefer to participate only in the pre-assembly event. 

This is a perfect opportunity for CEOs and board members of ministry organizations to participate as a group in a relevant and productive board formation experience. All participants are invited to a special joint reception with Tomorrow's Leader Honorees on Saturday, June 9 at 5:30 p.m. at the end of Saturday program sessions. The program concludes at 11:45 a.m. on Sunday, June 10 prior to the start of the CHA Assembly at 1:30 p.m.
