Getting Better All the Time with PCMA's EduCon

Fun Lee, Independent Planner

PCMA does it again! It gets better all the time.

I have been to many educational conferences and PCMA’s Education Conference is the one I look forward to every year.  The intimate setting allows more interaction and quality time to enjoy the thought-provoking keynote speakers, networking opportunities, and the ability see my colleagues and friends more than once during the week.  

The tech lounge was a great area to relax and mingle with other attendees while in a learning environment.  I attended sessions which taught me the correct way to style and word my LinkedIn profile and a quick lesson on Snapchat.  The most important session I participated in was the medical meetings round table where my colleagues discussed the compliance regulations and ways to generate revenue.  

My key takeaway came from keynote speaker Ben Casnocha who reminded us to treat our direct reports in this networking age as allies and not as employees and to adopt a teamwork approach because these employees need constant growth opportunities.  

I share a heartfelt thank you to St. Louis for being a great host city and to the NYPCMA Board of Directors for the opportunity to attend Educon.
