Message from the Chapter President

Aloha Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter Members!

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Holiday Season is finally upon us.  A lot has happened this past year, including tenuous weather, environmental events, and continuing change in healthcare. First and foremost, we send our thoughts and prayers to all friends and families who have been impacted by the significant natural disasters.

Second, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your ongoing commitment to making a difference towards the advancement of healthcare leadership in our Hawai'i-Pacific Region. The constant change and transformation taking place in healthcare has never been more evident and our chapter leadership is poised to meet these challenges. In November, we were visited by Gerry Berish, our Regional Director as he joined us for our strategic planning session in preparation for 2019.

We have had a productive quarter for our chapter, including having our annual strategic planning session during our chapter board meeting on Thursday, November 8.  On Friday, November 9 the education committee in partnership with AONE put on the Leadership in Action (LIA) Conference at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. The audience was engaged and inspired by the variety of presentation topics including the presentation by keynote speaker, Michael E. Frisina.  That said, I'd like to give a special thanks to our committee and board members for all the work they have done to make these meetings and events possible.  

Finally, we released a Call for Nominations and held our 2019 Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter Board Elections.  Compared to previous years, voter participation was very good at 27.3%. The election filled a variety of Officer positions, Board of Directors positions, and also member and chair positions for the many Committees. Participating in a Board position is truly the best way to get the most out of your ACHE membership and work side by side with leaders in our community. I urge all of you to get involved and to encourage your colleagues and friends to do so as well.

All my best to you and yours,

Micah
