At our December member meeting, we will look back on our work and accomplishments together over the past year. We’ll also host a SPECIAL EDITION of our Innovator’s Showcase featuring companies with new products and solutions to improve mental health care access and outcomes. The Showcase companies* are being chosen by the eight employers in our Mental Health Learning Network, and each innovator will share their high-energy, results-focused “pitch.” The Showcase will build member understanding of the marketplace and jump start strategic planning for the year ahead!
We’ll have a delicious hot breakfast to thank Action Group members for their passion and engagement over the past year. HR and benefits professionals who are actively considering membership are welcome to attend the meeting as guests. It’s a great opportunity to network, celebrate and learn!
*Watch for information coming soon on the companies to be featured in the Innovator’s Showcase.

COLLABORATIVE GATHERING. The Summit unites 225+ employers and other stakeholders from organizations of all types and sizes, serving as a catalyst for change. We challenge current health care marketplace practices, create a collective vision, take risks, and identify solutions.
ENGAGING CONTENT. As always, the Summit will feature high quality speakers and interactive panel discussions. Back by popular demand is our Innovator’s Showcase, where we hear from leading health care entrepreneurs who compete for votes by describing how their new business ventures can help employers achieve health care program goals. We will also have interactive voting, lively discussion, and active networking throughout the day, ensuring a fun and productive meeting.
VALUABLE BRAND POSITIONING. Your support of The Action Group and all Minnesota health care purchasers will be widely publicized before, during and after the event, and your sponsorship gives you the opportunity to share your messages with key decision-makers from around the region.
We work hard to make the Summit a national-caliber event, with the convenience of being in Minnesota, and feedback from our 2018 Summit reflects this:
Sponsorship levels are described here, and each includes the opportunity to exhibit at the event. We are holding the sponsorship levels and benefits at the 2018 levels (no increase in cost). We appreciate sponsorship commitments by December 14, so we can begin including your organization’s name as an event sponsor. Please note – we have a limited number of sponsorships available. This helps ensure that our sponsors have maximum opportunity to showcase their solutions and interact with attendees. The 2017 and 2018 sponsorships sold out early, so we encourage you to commit early for 2019 to ensure that space is available!
The member-led Action Group is much more than a health care purchaser coalition; we are part of a movement to create a better health care system. We are continuously helping tackle complex issues of importance to all employers: Health policy, price transparency, value-based benefits design, improved quality and patient safety, and eliminating low- and no-value care. Please join us in this effort by sponsoring the 2019 Employer Leadership Summit.
