2011 Chapter Management and Awards Program Standards

The purpose of ACHE’s Chapter Management and Awards Program is to ensure the delivery of high-quality services to ACHE affiliates and other healthcare executives at the local level. ACHE designed this program to provide chapter performance incentives and acknowledge outstanding accomplishments based on objectively measured results. 

To receive one of the 2012 Chapter Management Awards, fully chartered chapters must reach levels equal to or exceeding the following 2011 performance standards:

· Education and Networking Performance: 8.7 hours of chapter event programming per chapter member

· Net Membership Growth: 11.3 percent

· Level of Member Satisfaction: 7.7 or higher on a 10-point scale in chapter member satisfaction

· Advancement of Eligible Members: Advance a number greater than or equal to 11.4 percent of the members eligible to advance at the beginning of the year

These performance standards are set annually by taking a three-year average of performance (at the 90th percentile level) for each standard.
