SPN 23rd Annual Meeting, Grand Rapids, MI

Dr. Beth Haynes, BRI executive director, moderated a Docs 4 Patient Care panel on health policy in a breakout session. CON laws and other aspects of healthcare policy were discussed.

From the official website: The SPN Annual Meeting started in 1993 in Traverse City, Michigan. A dozen people met in a room with the hope of building a robust network of state think tanks throughout the country. Today, the SPN Annual Meeting brings together over 900 people from around the country, including state and national leaders, influencers, and professionals.

We believe that being good enough is not enough to win in the rapidly evolving political environment. We can’t afford to be outgunned, outmanned and outspent. The future of the country depends on it.

That is why the State Policy Network has hosted the Annual Meeting for 23 years running.

This year, the Annual Meeting is returning to the state where it all started. Freedom fighters will gather in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with an intentional focus on developing the solutions and skills to advance freedom at both the state and national level. Through the lens of our 2015 theme – Experience Freedom – we will consider ways to sharpen our solutions and strategies and help our core audiences envision their need for freedom. We will inspire and challenge ourselves to give Americans opportunities to experience the benefits of freedom to their everyday lives.

The program focuses on building leaders, refining operations, cultivating excellent communication and outreach strategies, analyzing policy priorities and training top-notch fundraisers. The SPN Annual Meeting is also the only outlet where state and national leaders can chart collaborative strategies together. SPN purposefully creates an environment to facilitate connections and build coalitions.
