5 Ways to Get the Most Out of #SOE2016

By Paula Martinez Azacarate and Vivian Nava-Schellinger

In less than one month, hundreds of policy experts, enrollment assisters, and health coverage leaders will convene in Washington, D.C., to share enrollment best practices and lessons learned from the third open enrollment period and plan for the future of enrollment. But there’s more to the State of Enrollment conference than simply showing up. Here are 5 tips to help you to get the most out of SOE 2016:

1. Plan ahead

Take a peek at the conference program and plan which sessions you want to attend. Highlights include:

  • Plenary sessions from thought leaders about the future of enrollment
  • Sharing and hearing successful enrollment tactics and strategies used in the third open enrollment period
  • Looking at consumer behavior and how people make health coverage decisions

Check out the full program and start planning today!

2. Get social

Stay up-to-date on all things conference-related before, during and after the conference by using #SOE2016 on Twitter and Facebook. Connect with other attendees, see what best practices are coming out of sessions you didn’t attend, share key takeaways that resonate with you, and much more. Why not get started right now?

3. Connect with others

The State of Enrollment conference is the perfect opportunity to build relationships and expand your network. You’ll be able to meet some of the brightest minds in the enrollment community, so be sure to take advantage. Challenge yourself to meet 5 new people (at least!) and find ways to stay connected after the conference.

4. Follow up

Take advantage of the Friday debrief sessions to reflect on what you have learned and how that fits into your community’s enrollment and outreach plan. What takeaways will you share with your colleagues? What new strategies will you implement in your community?

5. Have fun!

If you have a little downtime, you’re in luck — there’s plenty to do and see in Washington, D.C.  From historic sites to monuments to museums, there’s something for everyone. And if you’re in the mood to get your blood flowing, check out these walking, jogging, and running guides — or try grabbing a ride using Captial Bikeshare.
