Message from the Chapter President

Aloha Everyone,


Summer is officially upon us and half the year gone—time is flying by. We have several outstanding initiatives going on in the chapter; a major membership recruitment initiative, our annual breakfast on August 14, the ACHE Hawaii Program and our EMBA partnership with UH Shidler School of Business.


Increasing ACHE membership and participation is a fundamental objective at both the local and national level for ACHE. To this end we have initiated a recruiting competition. The deadline is the end of November--we have a significant prize for the member who brings in the most new recruits.


The ACHE Hawaii Program, Session 1: September 15 – 16 and/or Session 2: September 17 - 18 at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa. This is an opportunity for face-to-face credits here in Hawaii (24 total for the whole course).  Session one by Thomas A. Atchinson EdD:  Comprehensive Leadership for Senior-Level Executives. Session two by Daniel K. Zismer, PhD: Integration vs. Competition: The Future of Hospital Physician Relations. This is a two or four day event so please plan to attend. For more information go to www.ache.org/Hawaii.


Additionally, as you know we continue dialog with the University Of Hawaii Shidler School Of Business for co-developing an EMBA in Healthcare Management degree/concentration to satisfy the unique market needs of our community. We have the first class starting in the fall. We have extended these discussions to a number of stakeholders in the community, including JABSOM, in an attempt to create a pipeline for future physician leadership as we travel down the road toward greater clinical integration. We envision leveraging the ACHE Physician Executives Forum to provide a framework for this pipeline. More to come, so please stay tuned.


Thank you for our new volunteers for committees and welcome to our recent new members. As always this is an excellent time to get involved in our chapter. We want your voice heard so please come share your innovative ideas!


We are very proud of our outstanding newsletter, we hope you are enjoying it, and we welcome ideas for articles and feedback from you. Thanks to all of you for your continuing support and participation. Please take advantage of our educational offerings and don’t hesitate to let us know how we can be of service to you.
