Maximizing Your Work Productivity: Your Ultimate Digital Toolbox
What's in your technology toolbox? Probably several tools you’ve been using since the last century (though we do love Excel!) But what other tech tools do you need to know, so that you are optimizing your productivity while staying abreast of the latest developments to support your boss and colleagues?
This multi-focused afternoon includes three 30-minute mini-sessions that will add to your already substantial tech toolbox in a fast-paced, enjoyable, and information-rich setting. Topics for these mini-sessions include:
- Your Essential Digital Toolbox: Making the Most of Technology to Enhance Your Productivity
- Digital Literacy: An Unachievable Expectation or Your Ultimate Goal
- Are You Digitally Secure?
As an added feature, the speaker will share his own health journey, and what tech resources he wished he had on his devices prior to his medical emergency.

IHA established the Administrarive Professional Excellence Award to recognize outstanding support staff service within our member hospitals.
We need your help in identifying Hoosier role models who keep your organizations functioning efficiently. The award bears the name of an individual whose service to Indiana hospitals as an IHA staff member was truly exemplary. Mikell Brown was an administrative assistant in education and communications for 25 years. She was a tireless, trustworthy resource on all association issues and a mentor to all of our new employees.
Anyone employed at your facility can nominate a deserving individual. Download this form and return it with as many testimonials and as much supporting documentation as you wish. This will help our Awards Committee get to know your candidate and the impact they've made on your organization and the community.
The award will be presented each year during IHA's Annual Meeting. The recipient of the award will be invited to attend the meeting to receive the award.
