Aloha Chapter Members!

2019 continues to be an eventful year.

In June, we held our New Member Breakfast, one of our most well attended ever! Please join me in welcoming all of our new members. We are all excited to see your involvement in the many committees and events we have to offer!

Our Annual Breakfast in July, was held at the Hawai`i Prince Hotel. This was another well attended event with a great speaker, Colonel Mary Krueger, D.O., Commander for the Tripler Army Medical Center.

We then kicked off the Fall season with our Fall Social Mixer at Off the Wall Craft Beer and Wine in September. The reviews for the event were highly complimentary.

Please do not forget to register for the upcoming face-to-face credit opportunities:

ACHE Emerging Leaders Boot Camp
Date: October 25, 2019
Location: Pali Momi Medical Center

 
AONL Leadership in Action (ACHE co-sponsor)
Date: November 14-15, 2019
Location: The Kahala Hotel & Resort

With the exciting events coming up in the next few months I look forward to seeing everyone.

Respectfully,

Darlena
