Message from Your Board Chair


Dear Fellow Canadian Chapter Members,

Welcome to summer! As June comes to a close, and with it, my children’s school year, I am reminded of the power of transitions. Even the most anticipated transition comes with some level of mixed emotions: the beginning of anything is necessarily the end of something else. This is true in our careers as well. Congratulations to all of our student members who have graduated and now begin post-graduate fellowships or take on their first position with a new degree behind them. It is a time of excitement and a time to embrace all that is to come.

For those who are meeting these new colleagues in the workplace or through networking events, please take a moment to introduce yourself, and to welcome these new grads into the workforce. Invite them to coffee and learn more about what they bring to our profession. Encourage them to join ACHE: share with them the benefits of ACHE and what they could gain through membership. And remember the importance of a personal connection. Offer to be a reference for their membership application, and to attend a chapter event together. The opportunity to learn together – and from each other – continues to be one of the best benefits of ACHE membership.

As we move through our careers, we continue to experience transitions – a first management role; a move to the senior leadership team; a position in the C-suite. Each position is the result of hard work, commitment to lifelong learning and the culmination of new knowledge and experiences. ACHE is an important resource throughout our careers. You know that. You’re a member. Do your colleagues know? Have you told them about ACHE? Have you told us, your chapter board, what you value most about your membership? Have you come to an event recently? Now is the time!

Our chapter is only as strong as our own commitment to each other and our continued collective growth. So find the time, extend an invitation – and take a few minutes to let your chapter board know how we’re doing. We want to know what we’re doing well, what we could do better and if we’re just missing the mark on something, we want to know that too. We’re focused on reinvigorating the chapter and meeting your expectations more fully. Please let us know how. As you read through this newsletter, you will see information about September’s Vancouver Cluster, other happenings in the chapter and with ACHE nationally. I’d like to hear your feedback or suggestions, please email me at froesch@gmail.com. This is a standing invitation to all of our members. 

Frances C. Roesch, M.H.A., FACHE, is Executive Director at Queen Square Doctors, a large family practice group in Brampton, Ontario
