Administrative Professionals Conference Planning Committee Accepting Applications

Applications for the APC Planning Committee are being accepted until 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 23. Submit completed applications to Erica.Fells@unchealth.unc.edu and nakia.baileyhawes@unchealth.unc.edu.

The Administrative Professionals Conference (APC) has been an annual event at UNC Health Care since the early 1990s and regularly hosts between 330-400 administrative professionals each year. The goal is to recognize and give administrative professionals in the UNC Health Care organization an opportunity to experience a powerful on-site conference that builds awareness, knowledge, confidence and skills to meet the demands of administrative professionals in a health care setting.

The APC is typically held during Administrative Professionals Week (3rd/4th week of April) and is made possible by a planning process that includes: managing a budget; selecting a facilitator; catering an event; advertising information in an organization and selecting a conference gift. Serving on the APC is a unique opportunity to work with other professionals across the organization, serve the organization, positively impact and represent the role of the administrative professional, and develop your career and leadership skills.

Would you, or someone you know, like to serve on the APC Planning Committee? Applications are being accepted until 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 23. Find applications here. Completed application can be submitted to Erica Fells at Erica.Fells@unchealth.unc.edu and Nakia Bailey-Hawes at nakia.baileyhawes@unchealth.unc.edu.
