Aloha Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter Members!
The year is moving along and the Chapter has been tremendously busy with educational and networking events! I am so appreciative of the work of our Board and Committee Chairs! The Hawaii- Pacific Chapter was recently awarded with a ”Chapter of Distinction” at the annual ACHE Healthcare Congress. The award is reserved for consistently high performing chapters and certainly illustrates the level of commitment by our membership and leadership. The Chapter continues to grow and we have an exciting second half of the year planned!
We continue to see unprecedented changes in the healthcare landscape and staying connected through ACHE allows a way to stay abreast of changes and connect with other healthcare leaders. Thank you to all those who attended our annual breakfast meeting on July 18. This year we had special recognition awards for several professionals who helped grow our chapter over the years! It was a great way to say “Mahalo" to those who have diligently worked to improve our membership experience. Thank you also to all of you who attended our Social Mixer on August 22. Please continue joining us for future events! We love the opportunity to network with our chapter members.
As always, I want to thank all of our members for their commitment to strong quality healthcare leadership in Hawaii. If I can be of any assistance or help in any way, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming educational or networking event.
