AABC Birth Institute ROI
Make your case to attend the AABC Birth Institute.

So you really want to go to the AABC convention this year and you need to make the case to your employer. OK, let’s focus on the return on investment. You’ve heard about this, it’s ROI. Here are five tips on making the case to your boss, plus a sample letter that you can customize that helps you make your case.

  1. Focus on what you will specifically bring back to the organization as return for the investment. So maybe you decide after you look at the program that you will attend some of the clinical and some of the administrative sessions. So make a list of 2 or 3 things you want to get out of each session. Highlight those specific items in your letter.
  2. Offer to prepare and deliver a short presentation and Q&A to your colleagues to share what you learned. That way other people at your birth center will get the benefits of your attendance, too. Bring pictures, the conference program and talk about the specific things you learned about the general, clinical, administrative sessions, pre and post conference workshops, the birth center tour and how the gala helps to grow more birth centers.
  3. Share the syllabus and speaker handouts with your colleagues. As an attendee, you have unlimited access to materials posted by speakers. Maybe you can even contact some speakers to do presentations for your birth center.
  4. Offer to share a room to reduce hotel expenses by finding a roommate. We can let you know who is also looking to share a room. And who knows, that experience alone could be very beneficial. Remember birth center leaders attend this conference so your roomie could have tips on getting a better insurance contract or how to organize the best schedule.
  5. Be sure to check out the registration page where all the various rates are listed to see if you qualify for any of the lower rates or discounts.
