Gain professional advantage through leadership and skill development

The Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) offers experiential leadership and professional development opportunities for members at all career levels. HBA’s inviting and supportive environment provides you with a safe place to learn, contribute and grow.

  • Build your leadership experience — Strengthen critical leadership, consensus-building, negotiating and management skills by serving on committees and working together on programs, initiatives and events.
  • Increase your visibility and professional connections — Showcase your unique talents by contributing to the HBA. You will build lasting relationships with influential professional healthcare businesswomen.
  • Advance your career — Learn and practice new techniques and strategies that can be applied directly to your career. These include: marketing, market research, finance, project management, event planning, professional development and board governance.

The HBA celebrates our volunteers with a host of awards. Each year at the Leadership Institute outstanding teams, individuals and chapter leadership are presented with awards for their outstanding service.

There are opportunities to fit every career, every level, and every schedule. "The HBA adds professional value to members by offering them experiential leadership opportunities," says Laurie Cooke, RPh, CAE, CEO of the HBA. "The HBA professional staff work hand-in-hand with the volunteers to create so much more than our staff could alone. We are so fortunate to have dedicated professionals offer their professional expertise to create programs that advance the leadership of women in healthcare worldwide."

There are two categories of opportunities. The first supports committees and projects across the entire HBA organization. The second supports your local chapter. Please visit each chapter's page for more information on their volunteer opporunities.
