ACHE’s Leader-to-Leader Program

When you share the value of ACHE membership with your colleagues through encouraging them to join or advance to Fellow status, you can earn points to obtain rewards such as gift certificates toward ACHE education programs, a polo shirt, backpack tote, water bottle, umbrella and even a chance to be entered into a raffle for a free Congress registration when three or more are sponsored.

Each time a person joins ACHE or advances to Fellow status and lists your name as a sponsor on the application, you earn a point. The more points you earn, the more rewards you can receive. Points expire on Dec. 31 of the year after they were earned (e.g., a point earned on Jan. 1, 2018, will expire on Dec. 31, 2019). You can check your available points and discount program coupon codes in the My ACHE area of ache.org. To ensure colleagues reference you, referral cards are available that you can pass out so you receive the credit you deserve.

When you help grow ACHE, you make a strong statement about your professionalism and leadership in the healthcare field and also strengthen the organization. For more information on the program, go to ache.org/L2L.
