PRESIDENT’S RECEPTION – WEDNESDAY EVENING

Networking is a great part of the Conference experience, and there is ample opportunity for this! One such opportunity occurs Wednesday evening, following our educational session. The FAHQ Board invites all Conference participants to the President's Reception. This is a chance to network with your colleagues and have some fun at the end of a productive day. Drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and a lovely selection of hors d'oeuvres will be served and our Fabulous Raffle will be held to support FAHQ grants and the Healthcare Quality Foundation.

SPONSORS AND EXHIBITS

Every year FAHQ receives exceptional support from our vendor partners. This is one reason we can hold our conference registration to 2013 prices (and even reduce Pre-Conference fees). The Exhibit Hall is open on Thursday and Friday, allowing ample time to explore what these companies provide to support our work in healthcare quality. Special activities in the Exhibit Hall add to the excitement! In addition, we will recognize those companies providing additional support for FAHQ and our members by sponsoring elements of the conference.

PASSPORT DRAWING

All conference registrants will receive a blank "passport" to be stamped as you visit our different Exhibitors. Those getting their passport fully stamped are entered into a daily drawing (one entry per person) for a $50 gift card. Two drawings will be held; one on Wednesday and one on Thursday.

COMFORT THE KIDS TEDDY BEAR DRIVE

FAHQ is holding a Teddy Bear Drive to support First Responders at the City of Lake Mary Fire Department. All registrants bringing and donating a medium-sized (12 - 14 inches), brand new teddy bear will be entered into a drawing for a free registration to the 2016 Conference. You will receive one entry into the contest for each teddy bear donated. Bears must have short hair, be all plush, have no bead filling, no hard plastic heads, no motors, amplifiers or batteries, and still have the manufacturers tags attached.

HEALTHCARE QUALITY FOUNDATION (HQF) RAFFLE

FAHQ local areas, Past Presidents, corporate supporters and individual donors provide wonderful items each year for our raffle. Half of the funds raised are sent to the Healthcare Quality Foundation (HQF) HQF Web Page and half are retained by FAHQ in support of membership educational activities and grants. HQF supports the advancement of healthcare quality professionals. Proceeds collected throughout the year from individual and state donors, as well as unique fundraising events, fund the grants awarded by NAHQ throughout the year.
