Pre-Conference Sessions


The Happy Hour Keynote Conversation will provide an opportunity for an intimate conversation with one of Washington State’s most important health care leaders.

Keynote Conversation:  Leanne Berge, CEO of Community Health Plan of Washington

Leanne Berge is the CEO of CHPW.  As the leader of the state’s only non-profit Medicaid health plan, Berge brings a unique cultural lens to the challenge of reform.  We’ll talk through her leadership style, her vision for CHPW and the opportunities for system-level reform in Washington State in the years ahead. 

As attendees and our Keynote speaker enjoy a Happy Hour beverage, we will endeavor to solve some of the state’s health care problems through casual, informal conversation.

Plan on bringing your questions to a unique opportunity for interaction and engagement.  This session will be limited only to those folks participating in the Pre-Conference Sessions or the Networking Reception.
