2016 Members Meeting; General Stanley McChrystal
The 2016 KMS Annual Members Meeting—which has been traditionally held in May—will be held September 9-10 at the Sheraton Hotel in Overland Park.
The afternoon of September 9 will provide a groundbreaking opportunity for the physician & hospital community to showcase their organization's collaborative relationship. For many years, KMS and the Kansas Hospital Association have discussed the desire to hold their annual meetings in collaboration with each other; 2016 finally presented that occasion. Our invited keynote speaker is General Stanley McChrystal.
- A four-star general, McChrystal is the former Commander of U.S. and International Forces in Afghanistan and the former leader of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), which oversees the military's most sensitive forces.
- General McChrystal, who also is a best-selling author, will discuss his experiences leading troops in Iraq and what he thinks about leadership today.
On Saturday, September 10 KMS member physicians will convene for its Annual Members Meeting.
- This will be the second year of the newly-designed meeting format; the agenda features a limited number of speeches and focuses most of its time on an open, facilitated discussion Forum in which any KMS member may share feedback or ideas with the Board of Trustees.
- The Forum will be followed by a luncheon and a keynote address by former American Medical Association President Donald Palmisano, MD focused on physician leadership in today's challenging health care environment.
There is no fee to attend the meetings however, advance registration will be required.
