GCHEG is excited to announce the launch of our new Chapter website. In conjunction with ACHE, we upgraded the website in September and have seen a tremendous increase in functionality and traffic across the website.

Education & Networking

We are rounding out our event schedule for the year and have two remaining events.

Please join us at these events for some excellent dialogue and networking. Additionally, if you are seeking credit for FACHE recertification, these will both offer 1.5 F2F credits. (*Note: the 12/12 Innovation event is a repeat event from the August event. If you attended in August, you have already received credit for this event).

Need more credits? Check out some of our neighboring chapters for upcoming events offered within a short drive.

How to Recertify your FACHE:

Visit (login required) to learn when you are due to recertify. Please submit this application no later than Dec. 31; include your Qualified Education credits and your community/civic and healthcare activities. For more information, please visit

Thank you

It has been an honor leading such an engaged and active Chapter. I feel privileged to be part of GCHEG and ACHE and value the relationships made through both organizations. Thank you for your support, membership, and time in 2017. I look forward to another great year in 2018. Nehemie Owen will take over as Chapter President in January – I assure you, you are in excellent hands under her leadership!

Have a wonderful, safe, and restful holiday season,
