Where Grassroots Ideas Have Nationwide Impact

Every state is different, but they all share this challenge: the pandemic changed everything, including how you engage with experts who can help you do your job even better. That extends to AHIP’s State Issues Retreat ONLINE.*

To keep our participants, speakers, and partners safe, we took travel out of the equation. Expect in-depth, real-time discussions with state lawmakers, health insurance provider executives, and health care influencers.

Information That Crosses State Lines

Gain expert guidance on how your peers from coast to coast are making health care better. Information uniquely relevant to the work you do. Expect a professionally produced experience of a caliber only AHIP can deliver.

  • The online format means focused discussions can pivot to reflect what’s happening in the moment, for even greater relevance.
  • Now that travel is out of the mix, even more of your colleagues can attend.
  • The new pricing structure means your organization’s professional development budget goes further.
