Convening Panel

We are honored to release our list of Convening Panel members ahead of the 2023 Washington State of Reform Health Policy Conference!

If you know Washington health care, then you know this is a “who’s who” of senior health care executives and health policy leaders in the state. These folks will help shape our agenda through a process that launches mid November 2022!

Want to be a speaker? Want to join the Convening Panel? Just have questions? If so, drop us a line and let us know you’re interested.
