Members tell us that learning from expert speakers is one of the VBCH services employer members value most (Employer Survey 2012). We listen to our members; they tell us what challenges they experience, and we respond with national and local speakers on topics that are useful and timely. In addition to the education, members enjoy the informal networking and hearing what their peers are doing. Our education doesn’t stop there. We work one-on-one or in small groups of employers and other stakeholders to bridge the communication gap, to embed member ideas and suggestions with our partners, and transform a local idea to a national idea, and vice-versa.
