Message from the President
I think we can all agree that it will be nice to have warmer weather! As we end March, I am excited to have returned from another well attended ACHE Annual Congress. This is always a rewarding experience; filled with education, networking and fun! I encourage you to attend this conference. The education and net-working are amazing.
This year, I am very proud to announce that our Chapter Leadership team earned ACHE’s Award of Chapter Merit by achieving one of the four award performance standards in 2014; achieving this award is a great accomplishment and solid evidence of the hard work done by our chapter leaders.
The Board and I have been very busy planning for the year ahead; we will be holding two education events and two networking events as a chapter, in addition to supporting each Hospital Association during their annual meetings.
- The first event will be held on April 30th – May 1st at The Chase House at Mill Falls at the Lake in Meredith, NH. We are pleased to bring ‘The Art of Negotiation’, a well-attended and respected seminar that will offer 12 face-to-face credits.
The evening of April 30th we plan to hold a networking event for all members of our Tri-State area as well as individuals who are attending the seminar. This is an occasion that gives members an opportunity to meet and catch up with fellow members.
- The second event is the 2015 Annual Meeting being held on November 5th and 6th. We are very excited to be able to host the meeting at the Hanover Inn in Hanover, NH. Tom Atchison will be joining us on November 5th providing 6 face-to-face education credits on Comprehensive Leadership. We are currently working on a very exciting agenda for the November 6 meeting and look forward to sharing it with you as it comes together.
So Mark your calendars for these very special events!
I have one more request; ACHE is a very valuable resource for continued education in our field, along with networking and mentoring. On that note, I would ask you to invite a colleague that you’re mentoring; who you feel would like to share the ACHE experience by attending one of the planned events.
Our goal for the future is to grow in members so that we can expand the leadership education and mentoring opportunity to our careerists.
