We came together last week in Cherokee – September 14-16, 2022 – for our Fall Conference in the brand new event center of Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort. Over 100 attendees, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors enjoyed continuing education from some of healthcare’s finest thought leaders, participated in essential networking events with peers and old friends, honored outstanding industry achievement with our annual awards, and experienced the sold-out exhibit hall full of Alliance sponsor products and services.

Thank you to all our speakers and exhibitors for sharing your knowledge and expertise and thank you to our sponsors for your continued support of our organization: we couldn’t do it without you. And, lastly, thank you to our volunteers for leading the organization and keeping us moving in the right direction: your hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed.
