[Attending] the 2023 ACHCA Convocation was a great opportunity to further my knowledge of what is up and coming in the healthcare administration field, network with seasoned administrators who gave valuable advice, and reiterated the importance of being part of associations.  

I built connections with fellow students who came from UWEC as well as those from other universities. I learned a lot from healthcare professionals about administration, [the] next steps in schooling and certifications, and how ACHCA is a great resource to have as I begin as a healthcare leader."
