Eighth Annual Chapter Leaders Conference a Success


More than 200 chapter officers and ACHE elected leaders met in Rosemont (Chicago), Illinois on September 12-13, 2011 for the eighth annual Chapter Leaders Conference.

Eighty-one (98 percent) of the 82 chapters were represented at the conference, an increase from the 96 percent represented in 2010. The satisfaction of chapter leaders with the conference is measured by responses to the question “Overall, how would you rate the Chapter Leaders Conference?” In 2011, the conference was rated 4.7 and in 2010 was rated 4.55 on a 5-point scale. Twelve different concurrent sessions were conducted and all were rated between 3.5 and 4.7 on a 5-point scale. The Chapter of the Future exercise was rated a 4.7 on a 5-point scale.

Handouts for all sessions were distributed on portable USB drives to conference attendees and are available for downloading from ChapterLink.
