Message from your ACHE Regent, Fall 2015
Jen Chahanovich, FACHE


Aloha – I wanted to thank all the members that attended the Chapter’s annual breakfast on July 13. Christine M. Candio, Immediate Past Chairman of ACHE, was our guest speaker and shared with the group the importance of accepting change in health care – a topic we all can relate to in today’s health care world.
 

Two of our chapter members received the Regent Early Career Healthcare Executive Award at our annual breakfast. The criteria for the award includes:

  • Demonstration of leadership ability
  • Demonstration of innovation and creative management
  • Executive capability in developing his or her organization and promoting its growth and stature in the community
  • Participation in local, state, or provincial hospital and health association activities
  • Participate in civic/community activities and projects
  • Demonstration of participation in ACHE activities and interest in assisting ACHE in achieving its objective

Both of our awardees exceeded the criteria - congratulations to Major Charlotte Hildebrand, FACHE, and to Micah Ewing for their outstanding commitment supporting and moving the Hawai‘i /Pacific Chapter forward. 
 

As of January 2015, the ACHE total membership is 46,455 including student associates. Early membership is beneficial to the students and as a chapter we are helping to support the higher education network (HEN) in Hawai‘i. There is only one HEN in Hawai‘i and that is Shidler College of Business at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa. Gidget and I attended a Saturday session in July to raise awareness and share the benefits of being a member of the ACHE. If you are interested in learning more – please contact me.
 

As a chapter, we will be finishing out the year with more networking and educational opportunities for our members. I look forward to welcoming new members and congratulating the new Fellows at the upcoming events.
 

I am available for questions about the chapter or ACHE – please feel free to contact me on my cell or e-mail.
