2010 Theme

The VNAA's 28th Annual Meeting theme this year is "Thriving in the New Economy."

To thrive in the new economy, nonprofit community based home healthcare and hospice providers need to be both mission and performance driven. Achieving organizational excellence is essential to enabling financial health and patient care service, which results in superior patient outcomes. Join other nonprofit home healthcare and hospice leaders to learn how to strike the balance between mission and performance driven objectives.
