11th Annual National Conference on Allied Health Education


To:  ABHES-Accredited Institutions, Programs and Constituents

From:  ABHES Commissioners & Staff

Subject:  11th Annual National Conference on Allied Health Education


This serves as a reminder that the 11th Annual National Conference on Allied Health Education is being held February 26-28, 2014, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.  To view this year’s Program, visit: http://www.abhes.org/assets/files/ABHES_2014_program_final4.pdf

 
On-line pre-registration is now closed for all events; however,

 ON-SITE REGISTRATION WILL BE AVAILABLE

 
For those that have pre-registered and those wishing to register on-site for the conference, the Conference Registration & Information Center will open at 1:00 p.m. at the Tennessee Ballroom on Wednesday, February 26, 2014.

 

NOTE:  For those interested in attending a pre-conference workshop,

space may be limited and walk-ins will be permitted on a first come, first served basis. 

Keep in mind that such workshops have separate registration and fees, as applicable,

that are not inclusive of the conference registration. 

Acceptable forms of payments for these workshops are limited to cash or check made payable to ABHES


ABHES has developed an exciting agenda filled with current and insightful issues. The Commissioners’ Welcome Reception will kick off the conference from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, followed by the Opening General Session on Thursday morning.  A very special luncheon will be held on Thursday to honor the memory of Christopher J. Eaton, former Associate Executive Director. He is sorely missed, and we intend to celebrate his life with ABHES and his indelible impact on all who had the privilege of knowing him.


The conference will include an array of breakout sessions with the always popular award ceremonies recognizing institutions and programs that achieved a zero-violation initial or renewal visit, and individuals who have served ABHES with distinction. Events conclude with the ABHES Membership Meeting on Friday, during which time the accomplishments of 2013 will be reviewed and we will look toward what is ahead of ABHES in 2014.

We hope that you will join us in Nashville.

Thank you.
