Message from Your ACHE Regent - Summer 2017

Message from Your ACHE Regent

The summer months have certainly passed with speed since my last Regent's Message.  I trust your summer has been an enjoyable one.

This past summer, the ACHE Board of Governors and senior staff met in a 2 day retreat, focused on strategic planning.  The 2018-2020 strategic plan is aimed at preserving ACHE core values and addressing new directions for the next 2 years.

As well, our own Chapter has also been working on a proposed strategic plan that will benefit all ACHE members throughout Canada.  This plan was formulated with input from members across our country, and is now being distributed on a wider perspective, with opportunity for input through our Chapter Committees.  Recognition needs to be given to Frances Roesch, FACHE who has been leading this whole process within our Chapter.

The Annual Regent’s Breakfast is occurring on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, in conjunction with the OHA Health Achieve 2017 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto.  Please refer to this link:   http://www.healthachieve.com/program-schedule/pages/session.aspx#336

It is my pleasure to introduce our guest speaker, ACHE Chairman-Elect David A. Olson, FACHE.  Mr. Olson is Sr. VP External Relations and Chief Strategy Officer at Froedtert Health in Milwaukee.  It is a real privilege to have such an exceptional person as ACHE’s Chairman-Elect come speak at a smaller chapter such as ours.  All members and guests are encouraged to obtain tickets for this event.  Tickets can be purchased through dswerhone@gmail.com.

The Regent’s Awards for Canada recognize those ACHE members in healthcare leadership positions who demonstrate commitment to excellence in their service to their healthcare organizations, community volunteer groups, or Canadian Chapter of ACHE.  I welcome all nominations, which can be emailed in confidence to dswerhone@gmail.com.  The criteria for this award are posted on our Chapter Website. Deadline for nominations will be October 20, 2017.

During this time of witnessing natural disasters such as all the fires in BC and Alberta, the rains and storm in Houston, it is a call to action for us as “Leaders who Care”.  Let us all do our part each day to reach out to others in need, and demonstrate leadership.

Regardless of your level of involvement, we all benefit from learning from others.  Consider getting involved with our ACHE Canadian Chapter and inviting others to join ACHE.  Bring along a colleague to the Regent’s Breakfast!

I look forward to seeing everyone at our upcoming Regent’s Breakfast & Awards on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, in Toronto.

With enthusiasm,

Danielle K. Swerhone
ACHE Regent for Canada
