Birth Institute Letter to Employers



Dear [your supervisor’s name]:


To help provide [your facility’s name] and our clients with the nation’s leading information about birth centers , I would like to attend the American Association of Birth Centers (AABC) 10th Annual Birth Institute, which will be held September 22 - 25, 2016 in Pittsburgh, PA.

The AABC Birth Institute is the primary source for continuing education, networking, and trade exposition for birth centers across the country. The meeting includes 3.5 full days of more than 20 hours of continuing education on birth center administration, clinical sessions, care of birth center clients, and how birth centers can support the needs of women across the lifespan. I will also have the opportunity to network with birth center leaders in all aspects of the business.  My registration fee will include speaker handouts and slide presentations, which I can share with my colleagues after the event.


After reviewing the AABC program, I have chosen a number of sessions that I believe are key in helping me gain additional knowledge and increasing my performance:

[List sessions that will provide the greatest benefit to your facility. The list of clinical and administrative sessions is at]


Additionally, the AABC Birth Institute features industry vendors of products and services related to birth centers, billing, coding, insurance and maternal and women’s health across the lifespan. I will be able to meet with many vendors and suppliers and identify new products and services that could help us improve patient care and safety. See attached list for some of the vendors that will be in attendance:




The full price meeting registration fee for AABC members is $595 onsite, but can be reduced to $545 if I register by August 1, 2016.

[You will need to insert your travel cost numbers here.]

Here is the breakdown of conference costs:

· Roundtrip Airfare: <$xxxx>

· Transportation: <$xxxx>

Attending the AABC 10th Annual Birth Institute will enhance my professional knowledge and skills, which will result in better client outcomes and satisfaction. I will be able to meet with my peers and find out what’s working at facilities similar to ours, and how I can further advance the birth center model. I also will be able to pass along much of what I learn to you and my colleagues. Thank you for your consideration of this request.
