Message from the Chapter President, Summer 2016
Art Gladstone, FACHE

Welcome to our summer newsletter. As the summer months are upon us we see the sun rising earlier and setting later, yet I’m sure many of us still feel that there does not seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything done that we have on our healthcare plates. Our norm certainly has become constant change. 

Well the good news is we are all in this together and belonging to our great organization, ACHE, which brings strength to us collectively as a group.  Let me tell you, we rock as a group! Our chapter was recently acknowledged by ACHE with the 2016 Chapter Distinction Award. CONGRATULATIONS! The purpose of ACHE’s Chapter Awards Program is to ensure the delivery of high-quality services to ACHE members at the local level. ACHE designed this program to provide chapter performance incentives and acknowledge outstanding accomplishments based on objectively measured results. 
The program’s goals are as follows:

  • Create a system to objectively compare chapter performance and manage current and future success based on a common set of indicators. This management system identifies chapters that achieve superior results so best practices can be shared with other chapters.

  • Provide well-deserved recognition to top-performing chapters. All recognition is based on measurable outcomes of chapter performance. Chapters are recognized for annual performance and sustained performance over time. By providing this recognition, ACHE reinforces the added value of chapter membership to members. You can find more information about the awards program at the ACHE website.

In a nutshell….our Hawai‘i-Pacific Chapter is among the top performing chapters. Again, congratulations to you all.

I’d like to thank the board and committee members for all of the work and energy they have brought forward in creating, planning, and executing on many activities to keep our chapter active. Please be sure to read through the newsletter to see the highlights of the Spring Mixer Social that was held on May 10 at HASR Bistro and was very well attended by both current members and guests seeking information about our organization. There are also important education committee updates that you’ll want to read up on as well as lots of other important information.

So with that ….enjoy and I wish you all a safe and productive summer.
