There are many networking opportunities provided during the 2 1/2 days. In addition to the breakfasts and receptions sponsored by HealthCare Appraisers and VMG Health, Thursday morning we are offering a separate Compliance Professional Networking Breakfast, and on Friday morning, there will be a Networking Breakfast hosted by AHLA’s Women’s Leadership Council and sponsored by Sullivan, Cotter and Associates, Inc.
