On behalf of the AHHC Board of Directors, we would like to welcome you to the 2022 AHHC Leadership Conference in beautiful Wilmington, NC. Over the last year, home and hospice care providers have once again brought to the forefront the impact our industry has on those who need us the most. Now more than ever, there is a growing recognition that home and hospice care is central and paramount to creating a high quality system of care designed around the needs and expectations of those we serve. We are delighted to offer a robust array of top-tier educational content, networking opportunities, and solution partners with our leadership conference as home and hospice care leaders get ready for the future ahead. This event is to help you get ready for 2023 and beyond. Are You Ready?

Monday Morning Opening Keynote
September 26 | 9:00am-10:15am
We live in a world that constantly focuses on our weaknesses and tells us we are too much. Too loud or too quiet. Too messy or too neat. Too tough or too nice. Our parents, teachers, and managers encourage us to be well-balanced, well-rounded, and avoid extremes. At home, at school, and at work, we learn that we should moderate, reduce, or eliminate our weaknesses in order to be successful. We even take assessments that tell us to adapt, adjust, and modify who we are.
AMPLIFI is different...
It is an assessment based on the belief that every weakness has a corresponding strength. These unique combinations are your defining features and you should embrace and “amplifi” them.
Are you ready to turn up the volume on who you are?
