Message from Your ACHE Regent - Fall 2017

As 2017 comes to a close, and we all look forward to 2018, there is time for reflection where we have been and time to make plans in pursuit of where we want to be heading. Our healthcare system continues to change and challenge us to become better leaders...and better we are becoming through our networking in ACHE and support of one another.

This past fall, Chapter events occurred for our members. We continue to look at the logistics of offering educational events, and hope to see an ACHE Cluster here in Canada over the next year. We hope to increase the number of Higher Education Networks (HENs) we have here in Canada, beyond the two currently in place. We recognize that organizing any event and initiative across Canada is a challenge, in bringing together healthcare professionals from across our country.

The Annual Regent’s Breakfast was held this past November in conjunction with the OHA Health Achieve in Toronto. Paul W. Huras, FACHE, CEO for the South East Local Health Integration Network in Belleville, Ontario was this year's recipient for the 2017 ACHE Regent’s Award for Canada. Paul's commitment, dedication, passion and enthusiasm for the healthcare leadership profession over 35 years, made him to be an outstanding recipient of this award.

Looking ahead, the Board will be releasing the strategic plan for our Chapter. This working document will provide structure and direction to our Chapter in years to come. I look forward to seeing members at the upcoming ACHE Congress being held in Chicago on March 26-29, 2018. A Canadian Chapter dinner is always held that week, and everyone is invited to attend. More information will be sent out to all members.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge the work of many people who are serving on the ACHE Canadian Chapter Board. Several people will be parting from the Board, as elections bring on a new opportunity for people to join the team. Positions are open in different provinces of the country. If you want to join the Board on an exciting journey, complete and submit the forms to me.

So, as we say good-bye to 2017 and hello to 2018, I wish all of you a very happy and healthy and prosperous new year. I welcome your thoughts/ideas at any time as we move forward into the New Year. I can be reached at dswerhone@gmail.com.

With enthusiasm,

Danielle K. Swerhone
ACHE Regent for Canada
