ICHA’s Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, October 13, 2022, at the OSF HealthCare Ministry Headquarters, 124 SW Adams Street Peoria, IL 61602. We will begin with Mass at 7:30AM. ICHA’s Business meeting will be held from 8:30-8:55AM; opening prayer is at 9:00AM followed by the keynote address. Our meeting will conclude at 1:00PM followed by lunch, which is optional. The full draft agenda is available below as a PDF.
The theme of this year’s Annual Meeting is “Addressing Mental Health Care with Employees and the Communities We Serve”. The keynote address will be given by Bishop John Dolan. Bishop Dolan is the newly appointed bishop of the Diocese of Phoenix. Prior to his recent appointment, Bishop Dolan was pastor of six very diverse parishes within the Diocese of San Diego, and to each he has brought leadership, prayerfulness, collaboration, creativity and unity. As Vicar for Clergy he deepened the solidarity of the diocese’s presbyterate and enhanced the personal well-being of the priests and deacons.

Additionally, there will be a panel presentation on hospitals and Catholic Charites working in tandem to address mental health care needs in the communities we serve. We will also provide a presentation concerning the health care needs of our employees and how best to serve them.

To cover the cost of food, speakers, and meeting space, a donation of $125.00 per in-person participant is requested and a $90.00 donation for virtual participants. A continental breakfast will be available from 8:00AM to 8:30AM. You may register by returning the attached form and donation directly to us at our office (65 E. Wacker Place, Suite 1620, Chicago, IL 60601). We do not accept credit cards.
