What Our Members Say

"As a long-time member and recent Chair of the CEO Council, I can say that the meetings are a highlight of my year for a couple reasons.  First, the chance to meet other CEOs from around the country who are knowledgeable and dealing with the same issues we are dealing with allows for a great exchange of ideas.  Second, the AMGA always brings in good speakers on topics that are requested by the Councils, which prompts us to all think about new issues or old issues in new ways.  Finally, the ability to talk to the AMGA legislative staff always adds perspective on what is happening in DC and where the puck is going, which gives us the ability to skate in that direction."
-Glenn A. Loomis, MD, MSHM; President; Health Quest Medical Practice


Members of the Council are committed to sharing ideas, strategies and information with colleagues facing similar challenges and to building stronger professional connections with their peers in similar positions and organizations. This is achieved through various mediums including face-to-face meetings, webinars, and a dedicated listserv reserved solely for members of the Council. Topics members have focused on include:

  • Transitioning an organization from volume to value.

  • Unifying culture after a merger, acquisition, or other similar event.

  • Strategic cost management.

  • Risk based contracting.

Council members must be willing to actively work together on activities which can accelerate collective learning, reduce the costs of innovation and discovery, and facilitate the transfer of new knowledge to the larger community of AMGA members.
