Section I – Hotel Reservation

Sleeping room reservations (king and two double beds) are available at a discounted rate of $189 plus applicable taxes (currently 13% and .56 per night) and optional $27 plus tax resort fee (golf, bikes or beach kit).

If  you are using hospital, personal or other funds to pay for your hotel, please make your own reservation by calling the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach at (800) 233-1234 and ask for the “California Association of Hospitals and Health Systems” or “CAHHS” meeting rate or click here to make your reservations online.

If CAHHS has agreed to pay for your hotel expense, we will make your reservations for you and no action is needed on  your part.

Section II – Logistics Questionnaire

Please provide your agenda item suggestions, attendance, meal selections, hotel and expense plans by completing a logistics questionnaire. Click here to complete the questionnaire.

Section III – Status Report

In an effort to economize on meeting timing, minimal verbal reports will be necessary as written quarterly status reports will be compiled into the meeting handouts. One report will suffice for 2019 first and second quarters. Click here to submit your report.

Section IV – Hospital Challenges Report

As we prepare for the 2020 California Hospital Volunteer Leadership Conference, it is imperative that we focus on the needs of our hospitals. We need your help to better understand your hospital challenges and to formulate educational goals that align hospital volunteer resources to support them. Please contact your hospital CEO (or alternate hospital leader) to discuss what the top three to five challenges your hospital is facing in the upcoming year. Click here to submit your challenges.
