Western Regional Trustee Symposium

The Western Regional Trustee Symposium (WRTS) offers quality health care governance programming at an affordable cost. Designed for hospital board members and executive leadership, the program broadens the participants’ awareness of current health care trends that affect them, and how they serve their boards and communities. Best practices of successful health care governance are shared for practical application in the boardroom. WRTS provides excellent networking opportunities for trustees and leaders from hospitals of varying size and scope. This symposium is geared toward rural and Critical Access Hospitals, and aims to challenge conventional thinking with fresh approaches to standard health care governance concerns and business practices.

The Western Regional Trustee Symposium is a collaboration of the hospital associations from Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, South Dakota and Utah.

Why should you attend WRTS?
Attendees will gain increased knowledge about many issues through educational sessions, networking, and information exchange with other trustees. Educational sessions provided address important issues to health care trustees and executives.

Who should attend WRTS? 
Trustees and executive staff from hospitals and health systems are encouraged to attend as a team, and a discount is provided if four or more individuals 
attend from the same organization. Spouses and guests are also welcome to attend.
