A Message from Our President and CEO

First, my sincerest thanks. Once again, through a difficult year rife with budget tightening, continued restrictions on travel and mobility, and seemingly never-ending Zoom calls, you showed unwavering support for AHP and the professionals who work every day to transform healthcare through philanthropy.  We are grateful beyond words.

With any luck 2022 will mark the return of AHP’s in-person events and a continuation of our digital content and on-demand learning. Our goal will be to blend the best of both models to come out of the pandemic with stronger, more compelling professional development for our membership. We’d love your input as to what worked well so that we are sure to develop the best programming moving forward.

Many of you chose to co-create with us this year. We launched several multi-part webinar programs designed to be more intensive dives into complex areas with experts from your ranks. We co-authored content, co-issued surveys, and many of you also chose to include “advertorial” content in the AHP Connect. We welcomed these creative ideas and hope you continue to bring them forward. Our goal with this type of work is to help you achieve your goals and to provide our membership with valuable content they might otherwise not have access to.

We look forward to your ideas and to working with you again this year.

All my best,

Alice Ayres signature

President and CEO

Event Sponsorships

After shifting to virtual events in 2020 and 2021, we plan to return to traditional, in-person events in 2022. However, we are continually monitoring recommendations in light of changing pandemic circumstances. Should the health situation require it, we will consider returning to a virtual environment.
