Message from the Regent


 

Aloha Hawai‘i Pacific ACHE Members!

I cannot believe the year is flying by so quickly. As your Regent, I am looking forward to meeting everyone at this year’s Annual Breakfast and talking story about the many challenges and opportunities facing each of us in our roles as “Leaders of Change” in the current healthcare environment.

As I have been diving into this role as your Regent, I have realized the power of our ACHE website ache.org and the many tools and information available to each of us ranging from various career assessments, job bank, career development, up to date articles on healthcare transformation, resume updating and mentoring. While reviewing the website, I ask you to draw your attention to the link provided for national news. Exciting changes are happening in healthcare and we are fortunate to be a part of that change. I encourage all of you to link in and take advantage of the many tools available to you on your local ACHE website hawaii.ache.org.

I want to thank Micah Ewing, FACHE, President of Hawai‘i Pacific Chapter of ACHE, and his team for continuing to value and prioritize lifelong learning for the chapter with the upcoming “face-to-face” educational opportunities. These opportunities are for all members to gain and/or maintain their FACHE credentials without leaving the state of Hawai‘i. I encourage you to sign up and join in on these opportunities scheduled for August 13-14, 2018 at the Queen’s Conference Center from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Keep an eye out for the save the date and enrollment information. Scholarships will be made available.

Over the next three years as your Regent, I plan to focus on:

- Lifelong Learning,
- Diversity, and
- Strengthening Dyad Partnerships.

Mahalo,
Gidget
