Celebrating National Volunteer Week
National Volunteer Week is April 21-27. You may or may not know that ASPR is a volunteer run organization. The Board of Directors consists of volunteer members. The programs and services provided are planned and developed by volunteer members like you.
As the Executive Director of ASPR, I’d like to say thank you to all of our volunteers for the time and effort that they devote to ASPR! Their dedication has made and will continue to make a huge impact on ASPR. Our volunteers demonstrate how working together can help an organization accomplish great things! Thank you for all that you do!

NEW! Volunteer Opportunities and Development
We’d like to introduce the new ASPR Volunteer Development Program! The ASPR Volunteer Development Program is designed to help match members to volunteer opportunities and to provide professional development resources to members to prepare them for leadership roles within their organization, ASPR, and our industry.
ASPR’s Volunteer Development Portal is a place where you can volunteer for projects that fit your interests, expertise, and schedule. You will also find a wealth of information to help you develop your leadership skills to help you excel as a leader in your organization, in ASPR, and in the physician recruitment and retention industry.
Check out the Volunteer Opportunities job board to see what short term and long term projects are available that you might be interested in getting involved with. Add your name to the Volunteer Match database and tell us what your interests and skills sets are so that we can contact you if a new opportunity arises that matches what you’re looking for. Visit the Professional Development Resources section to get suggestions on books to read, webinars to watch, and other resources to help you further your professional development.
Here is a peak at what the Volunteer Development Portal looks like:
You can find the Volunteer Development Portal in the Member Resources section of the ASPR website. We invite you to check it out today!

April Webinar: Value-Based Physician Compensation: Considerations in the Transition
Register today for this free webinar being held on April 24 at 1:00 ET.
Speakers: Len Henzke, Principal, ECG Management Consultants and Maria Hayduk, Senior Manager, ECG Management Consultants
The U.S. healthcare system is in the early stages of a transition from a volume-based to a value-based reimbursement methodology that will take many years to take effect. Regardless of your beliefs about the long-term effectiveness of payment reform, physician organizations, including hospital-based and independent medical groups, will need to adapt to a payment environment that rewards value over volume. As payment models shift toward a focus on value and reimbursement becomes increasingly linked to measurements of quality and efficiency, physician organizations will need to incorporate this new focus into the day-to-day actions of their physicians. The most effective mechanism to accomplish this goal is to modify today’s physician compensation structures to better align with organizational goals in a value-based payment environment. The purpose of this presentation will be to address the critical success factors for integrating non-productivity incentives into a market-based compensation plan.
