ASA will move forward with healthcare, strategic initiatives

In its meeting prior to last month’s national conference in Chicago, the ASA’s Business Valuation Committee approved a proposal representatives from the business valuation, machinery and technical services, and real property sections to design and teach a “multi-discipline course in valuing health care entities,” reports Linda Trugman, chair of the BV Committee, in her monthly e-update to members. “The committee will also be making a recommendation to the Board of Governors to go forward with this initiative,” Trugman adds. “I know that many of you are interested in health care valuation and we are looking forward to meeting those needs.” Another major item on the agenda: the design and implementation of a strategic plan, which the committee will continue to work on over the next few months.
