Aloha Hawai’i Pacific Chapter Members,

What an amazing year we’ve had!

I want to thank our board, our members and sponsors for a great year! As I send this final message of my year as your president, I am reminded of our chapter's mission, “To advance healthcare management excellence through education and networking services that meet or exceed the  expectations of our members.” This mission was supported by a number of efforts this year:

  1. Growth of our chapter membership by 45 individuals
  2. Increase in members who advanced to Fellow -9 individuals
  3. Meet and Greet session – 43 members
  4. New member orientation for 15 individuals
  5. Over 22 hours in educational, face to face credit opportunities for our members


The last quarter of 2015 was filled with exceptional educational opportunities for chapter members of which many attended.

In October, the chapter hosted Carson Dye for the first chapter-supported education session for 2 days providing 12 face-to-face credits. We had 34 members take advantage of this opportunity. The educational program was focused on leadership strategies and was made possible by our committed sponsors. Along with the education session, we sponsored an added bonus of a 1.5 credit face-to-face diversity panel discussion moderated by Dr. Kathleen Kozak.  

We partnered with the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) in November for a 2-day conference: “Leadership in Action.” This is a new relationship that afforded our chapter members the opportunity to secure 8-10 ACHE Qualified Credits. The chapter's commitment to lifelong learning continues with the upcoming sponsorship of a panel at the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) 2016 conference, “Go Beyond” – April 21st & 22nd. Refer to ACHE Hawai’i Chapter website for more details.
 
We continue to have a need for volunteers for our committees—communications, sponsorship, membership, diversity and education. As you ring in the new year, this is a perfect time to get involved in our chapter. Your input and voice are important to helping shape the future of our chapter. Please join and share your innovative ideas!
 
Thanks to all of you for your continued support and participation in our chapter. I look to supporting Art Gladstone, CEO of Straub Hospital & Clinic and Pali Momi Medical Center, our incoming 2016 Chapter President and the board in my role as Immediate Past President.

Again, it has been a pleasure serving as the 2015 President and I look forward to continue to support and assist our chapter any way I can.
 
Gidget
