Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Usually dreaded, annual meetings can provide a crucial, powerful, but often neglected context for reviewing the "vital signs" of a group practice: mission, membership, marketplace strategy and infrastructure. We propose that regular and thoughtful attention to essential issues of cohesion and effectiveness significantly increases the likelihood of group vitality and group member satisfaction. We suggest a methodology for embedding these essential conversations into the ritual of the annual meeting.
