2017 Spring Conference


June 7-9, 2017

Sea Crest Beach Hotel

Falmouth, MA


Authors, poets, song writers and many others use the sea for inspiration. And who could blame them? The sea has strength, power, beauty, resilience and majesty that lend itself to the arts.

However, it has other traits that are comparable to today’s healthcare environment – complex, turbulent, mesmerizing, diverse and even sometimes stormy.

Tides change. Sands shift. Nothing stays the same – especially in our industry. That’s why we invite you to the sea for the 2017 NESHCo Spring Conference, June 7 to 9 at the beautiful Sea Crest Beach Hotel in North Falmouth, MA.

So how do we all deal with this change? One way is by leaning on each other and learning from each other. Our challenges are real and certainly not unique to those of us in our industry. That’s why we’ve put together what we think is a fantastic program to provide you with the tools and information you need to navigate today’s healthcare environment.

What better place to do all this than seaside? This year’s conference brings us directly to our New England roots – the coast. The Sea Crest Beach Hotel will comfort you while the program we designed inspires you. Simply put, we think it’s a win-win situation and we can’t wait to see you in June.

Speakers Dan Miers, Eric Silberman and Dan Dunlop will each share their industry knowledge and provide information to help us all succeed after the conference. In addition, we’ve selected nine breakout sessions for you to to gather even more information. Add in a unique pre-conference workshop and a Friday morning program featuring key Lamplighter winners from the night before and we’re confident you’ll leave with increased knowledge and able to better navigate our changing landscape.

To set the mood for the conference, our opening night event draws on all that is good from the sea – and we’ll be on the beach for a traditional New England clambake! Feel the sand in your toes, listen to the waves and enjoy great food with your friends and colleagues as you get ready for the rest of the conference. You’re going to be eating and playing on the beach. Pack appropriately!

After a full day of learning and networking, the second night is time to honor the best work in our organization at the annual Lamplighter Awards Dinner. You work hard all year. And, let’s face it, recognition matters. That’s why this is such a great night to celebrate!

When our third day concludes, it’s not just our work that beckons, but it’s also the sea. Enjoy the rest of your day at the Sea Crest or even book extra time over the weekend for additional fun and inspiration.

We’re confident you’re going to remember this conference for a long time, not just for the fantastic location and the chance to relax at the beach, but for the conference lineup, too. The combination is going to make the 2017 NESHCo Spring Conference a popular event. Register today to take advantage of early bird pricing – and the best room selection, too! If there’s more than one person coming from your organization, we have group pricing that will help all of you.

We look forward to welcoming you, meeting you, working with you and celebrating with you. We’ll see you at the beach!
