2010 AHDI Annual Convention and Expo Minimize


ACE 2010 - A Resounding Success!

The AHDI Board of Directors and staff would like to thank everyone who attended the 32nd Annual Convention & Exposition either in person or virtually via webinar, live video stream, or ACE365. Austin, Texas proved to be a superb location for ACE 2010, and we are grateful for the Capital Chapter and the Texas State Association’s generous donation of their time and service throughout the week. Thank you for being the most gracious of hosts.

During these challenging economic times with so much uncertainty permeating the healthcare documentation industry, we never take for granted the sacrifice that many have to make in order to invest in convention registration and expenses. We hope you found your investment to be worth while and that you may leverage all of the new information, professional contacts and business opportunities you obtained at ACE to elevate your career and solidify your future in healthcare. We promise to continue to deliver dynamic, high-impact events in the future and hope that you will continue to share these important experiences with us.

Such an outstanding event wouldn’t be possible without our exhibitors and sponsors, and we want to extend a very special thank you to those who showed their support of the association. Your financial support and, even more importantly, your presence at our convention demonstrates your commitment to the collaborative vision we share for this industry and the future of our sector.
