These last two years were particularly stressful for health care professionals in all positions. We became proficient and comfortable working in a virtual environment. The time has come to reconnect in person, share stories and lessons learned. The Hospital Council – Northern and Central California is bringing back the Administrative Support Conference. It is past time to convene with colleagues and celebrate the professional you!

This year’s conference will bring speakers to Sacramento who will make you laugh, learn and think. You will see colleagues you probably have not seen since the pandemic and welcome new coworkers into this group of amazing people.
