Celebrate October – New Member Month

Our Chapter Board recently voted to designate October as New Member Month. This means you have the opportunity to reach out to non members of the American College of Healthcare Executives and let them know about our organization as a way of encouraging them to join. New members in the following counties are automatically enrolled in the ACHE of Central Florida Chapter when they join: Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole or Volusia Counties. Our chapter also receives a rebate of the member dues each year to help fund local educational events and activities for our members.

Not only do new members benefit from the valuable professional resources and connections that become available to them, but as a current member you also can qualify for free gifts for every new member you refer. The Leader-to-Leader Program allows you to earn points redeemable for reward items such as ACHE gift certificates or gift items emblazoned with the ACHE logo. When you are listed as the referral name on a new member application, you will receive credit for recruiting that new member when he or she becomes a member. You also can earn credits for encouraging a member to become board certified. To find out more about this program, go to this link:  http://www.ache.org/mbership/l2l/index.cfm

There are multiple means of letting your colleagues, business associates, vendors and others know about ACHE, including:

  • Send an e-mail. The link below makes it extremely easy to send information about ACHE membership to someone. Just fill in the person's name and e-mail address and send it off. It’s that simple. http://www.ache.org/mbership/tell.cfm                                                                            
  • Pick up the phone. Call someone and ask them if they have ever thought of joining a great professional organization. Follow-up with an e-mail message. Need recruitment talking points for potential members, go to this link:  http://www.ache.org/mbership/l2l/TalkingPoints_PotentialMembers.pdf  
  • Take a potential member to lunch. Make an appointment with someone you believe would benefit from membership in our local ACHE chapter. Print out some of the materials from ache.org and bring them with you. You might want to download an application and bring it with you:  http://www.ache.org/apps/member_application.pdf

And remember, there are several categories of membership including: Student Associate (Annual dues of $75); Faculty (Annual dues of $115); and Member (Annual dues of $150 for the first two years).

Now is a great time to encourage others to consider membership in our organization that allows its more than 30,000 members to grow professionally, expand their career potential and be part of an international society of healthcare executives who are leaders in hospitals, healthcare systems and other healthcare organizations.
