By Joshua Vincent posted 01-03-2024 10:00 AM


Dear HEUG Community,

I hope your New Year is off to a great start. As many of you may have begun this year embracing new resolutions, today, I have some important updates regarding our 2024 events, along with an enthusiastic invitation to join us for Alliance 2024.

Strategic Changes to 2024 HEUG Regional Events

Equipped with your valuable feedback, the HEUG Board held a thorough strategic session to examine our events and we've decided to take a bold step to enhance our offerings. For 2024, we are going to forego hosting our traditional US regional events. This decision, though difficult, is part of our broader plan to update and modernize our approach to serving the HEUG community.

Our Key Focus Areas:

  • Modernizing the Experience: Leveraging this period to innovate and enhance future regional events.
  • Tailored Content: Focusing on creating content that directly aligns with your needs and interests.
  • Affordability: Ensuring our future events provide exceptional value within budget-friendly parameters.

Alliance 2024: Your Premier Destination for Learning and Networking

In place of the 2024 US regional events, we strongly encourage our members to register for our flagship event: Alliance 2024. This year’s conference promises to be an extraordinary gathering of minds, offering unparalleled opportunities for learning, networking, and professional growth.

Why Attend Alliance 2024?

  • Expert-Led Sessions & Workshops: Learn from the best in the field, with content that's directly relevant to your work.
  • Exclusive Networking Opportunities: Forge valuable connections with peers and industry leaders.
  • Investment in Your Career: Enhance your skills and knowledge in ways that will directly impact your professional journey.
