Employer Value Letter

IAHCSMM recognizes that, at times, healthcare professionals must justify costs and work absences associated with attending off-site educational meetings. For this reason, IAHCSMM developed a Value Letter to help your healthcare facility understand the value of the IAHCSMM Annual Conference & Expo and recognize the many benefits of attending this rich educational experience- and why budgeting expenses and time off will deliver significant value to bring home to the organization, as a whole. We encourage you to keep this letter on file and modify it, as needed, for future meetings and other Sterile Processing-related educational programs.

Step One

Download the Value Letter document (available in Microsoft Word format), from the link below. Once downloaded, you will be able to customize the letter to address it to the appropriate person and sign it as an official request.

Step Two

Download the Session Outline Form (available in PDF format).  Once downloaded, you will be able to simply check-off which sessions you wish to attend, indicating the education that will best bring the greatest value to you and/or your department.

Step Three

Contact your supervisor, manager, director or other qualifying person, and request a short meeting.  Verbalize your wish to attend the conference, how attendance can boost education not only for you but for the entire department, and deliver all of the documents you’ve downloaded/completed from the previous steps.  Continue the conversation and if additional information is needed, reach out to us at conference@iahcsmm.org.
