The Hawaii-Pacific Chapter had a strong beginning of the year with continued membership growth in the first quarter.

Our efforts in recruiting and providing educational programs toward credentialing are definitely making a difference. In the first quarter the chapter had 6 new members, and 4 recertified Fellows! I am always available to present if you or your organization ever wants information on ACHE and benefits of membership.  If individuals are interested, I can certainly make time to follow up and discuss and provide information as well.  Please see below information on big upcoming chapter event!!

The Hawaii Pacific Chapter will be hosting an information session  for  professionals and students that want to learn more about potential membership. This presentation will be immediately followed by a social mixer open for all members and those who attend the information session. This is a great way to learn about ACHE and see the networking potential in action!! I encourage all members to attend the social mixer and set a goal to bring prospective members to the information session. We will be sending out additional information and collateral on the big event!! Come and bring somebody!!!
