Fall Leadership Forum 2024

Event Date: 10/22/2024 - 10/25/2024

Event Overview


The strategic fundamentals regional payers must operationalize to survive and thrive

Our bi-annual leadership forums are designed specifically to support HPA member plan executive teams as they grapple with far reaching challenges, such as the impact of the big bets from national payers and delivery systems, major trends in physician and provider-led organizations, the shifting digital innovation space, and winners and losers in Government-sponsored care and dynamics at the federal and state levels, as well as the future of commercial for small plans.   These executive retreats’ agendas and learning objectives are powered by deep study of Alliance members’ multi-year strategies and feature a lineup of nationally recognized subject matter experts, plus provide exclusive access to proprietary content on the competitive landscape for use in your own environmental scans and strategic planning.



Why attend

Investing the time to connect with your Alliance executive peers at our in-person Leadership Forums consistently pays huge dividends.  The 2024 Fall Forum will be no exception. Register now and secure your room before the room block sells out.  Participants will benefit from the following: 

  1. Gain exclusive access to proprietary content on the competitive landscape for use in your own environmental scans, strategic planning, and board engagement.

  2. Move beyond superficial discussions with the help of carefully crafted sessions and spaces that connect you with your Alliance network of executive peers.

  3. Hear real-world examples of how organizations like yours are seeking to operationalize the strategic fundamentals necessary to meet organizational goals.

  4. Get a timely update from HPA leadership on the organization's 2025 operational plan and key strategic milestones, plus share feedback and provide guidance and insight at the Fall Board Meeting (our board meetings are always open to Alliance member health plan attendees). 

Who should attend

The 2024 Fall Leadership Forum is designed as an executive retreat for Alliance member plan CEOs and their top leadership teams. Executives with responsibility for developing, evolving, and communicating your organization’s strategic plan and key milestones and objectives will find this event particularly useful.  We suggest Alliance health plan leaders in the following roles join us!

  • Chief executive officer
  • Chief medical officer/medical director
  • Chief operating officer
  • Chief financial officer
  • Other C-level executives, particularly those with responsibility for strategy development and execution
