Healthcare Convention & Exhibitors Association Changes Membership Structure

December 14, 2017

The Healthcare Convention & Exhibitors Association unveiled its new, streamlined Membership Structure. HCEA volunteers and staff reviewed membership needs with all categories and types of HCEA members, and introduced a simple membership structure that allows for more choice.

HCEA’s membership categories remain the same: Association, Corporation, and Industry Partner. Now, members will choose how many individuals from the organization will participate in HCEA and have access to benefits.

“HCEA appreciates the stellar work of the HCEA Membership Ad Hoc Committee in responding to the membership’s request for a new membership structure,” said Kyle Wood, HCEA president.

He added, “The simplicity of this system allows for more choice, makes it easier to explain the investment to your boss, and streamlines the entire organization’s membership process across all membership types.”

The new HCEA membership structure is the latest milestone in a series of organizational advancements.

During the past year, HCEA has undertaken several critical initiatives including launching a new website, expanding year-round education resources (webinars and resource information center), reimagining HCEAConnect Annual Conference, and introducing the new event HCEAInnovate.

For more information about the HCEA and our membership, please contact Amy Lotz, CAE, HCEA executive director, at or 703-935-1961 or visit our website at
