Aloha from our Chapter President, Jen Chahanovich, FACHE

I attended the 2012 Congress on Healthcare Leadership in March – it was inspiring and motivating. More than 4,500 healthcare executives attended Congress. The buzz words this year from attendees were ACO and PHO.  

The tradition for the past six years is for the Chapter President and the Regent to host a dinner for our members during Congress. This year we had a great dinner and fellowship with a group from Hawai‘i and Guam.

I was honored this year at Congress to volunteer in the Career Center as a Career Counselor – more than 900 Congress attendees went through the Career Center for Resume Review and Career Counseling services. I am happy to report there are so many qualified early careerists ready to take on the challenging careers in healthcare.

The goals for 2012 for our Chapter include refocusing our efforts on supporting our members in their advancement to Fellow status while simultaneously increasing our membership enrollment and participation in educational meetings. The Chapter plans to support its members by having advancement seminars as well as having study guides for members to use.

I hope to see you soon at our next educational meeting planned for July 11 at 7:00 a.m. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments regarding our chapter activities at
