Message from Your ACHE Regent - Summer 2018


It is with enthusiasm that I continue my term for ACHE Regent for Canada. As your Regent and bridge between ACHE and the Canadian chapter I can bring forward resources to focus on strategic issues such as diversity, growth of our membership, and more inclusion of healthcare leaders. 

The ACHE Board of Governors continues to focus on our 2018 strategic objectives; membership growth and satisfaction; education and networking opportunities; Fellow advancement; and diversity and inclusion.

Our ACHE Canadian Chapter Board has an ambitious strategic plan supporting the ACHE’s mission, core values, strategies and objectives.  The Chapter’s plans are well thought out and offer activities by providing value to our membership and healthcare leaders through education, networking, foster members to attain credentials, inclusion and develop new ways to communicate the value of an ACHE membership.

Chapter growth and retention are key practices to which the Canadian Chapter Board and myself are very committed towards maintaining.  I want to thank our members who have invested/reinvested in maintaining their membership with the Chapter. There is appreciation for every member who has chosen to join our chapter; I believe we are committed to ensure that everyone receives value from your ACHE membership.

Participating in events are the primary means of achieving ACHE strategic missions and objectives, but there are numerous activities in addition to the events intended to advance safety, build partnerships, and support leaders in innovation and transformation.  Everyone is encouraged to get involved in upcoming ACHE events.

BC Health Leaders Conference
October 23-25, 2018 at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel in Vancouver, BC is another opportunity to achieve face-to-face credits with ACHE.

ACHE Congress on Healthcare Leadership
March 4-7, 2019 at the Hilton Chicago/Palmer House Hilton Hotels in Chicago, Ill.

In summary, hearing and seeing the synergies developed between committees and events is energizing.  There is always room for more interested parties who wish to join a committee of the Chapter Board.  Just let any member of the Board know you are interested in becoming involved in the ACHE Canadian Chapter.

Several of these actions and events outlined for our Chapter seem small, but collectively put together, our small actions are making a difference.  ACHE is a place to do small things in a very big way!

Get involved!

With enthusiasm,


Danielle Swerhone, RN, FACHE, FCCHL
ACHE Regent for Canada
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
