Congratulations to the new AAH Chair for this committee, Steve Langston!

By the time you read this edition, another fantastic conference and learning opportunity will have passed, the ASHE Planning, Design and Construction Summit, this year held in Orlando, Florida. Co-produced with AAH and ASHE, including four full days of tours, learning sessions and roundtables on “Flexibililty for the Future;” and keynote speakers including Ann Compton, this conference never disappoints. Look for highlights in our next Update, and be sure to include ASHE PDC in your planning calendar for 2018.

Summer will be here before you know it! Watch your email and the Academy website for information on this year’s Summer Leadership Summit in Chicago, July 21-23, 2017. Registration to open in early April.


Mark your calendars, and plan to head back to Orlando for the Healthcare Design Expo and Conference. Co-produced with the Center for Health Design, the AAH has a significant influence on the excellent content for this conference. Plan to meet our new committee chair, Sara Shumbera, at the Orlando Convention Center on November 11-14, 2017.
