Aloha Hawaii-Pacific ACHE Members,

To all of the Healthcare Heroes, thank you!It is amazing to see the dedication and professionalism put on display by our clinical teams and support staff during this pandemic. I also trust that as healthcare leaders, we are all leaning in to help support the staff during this time. This has been an "all hands on deck" effort, and it has been encouraging to see the various health care facilities working collaboratively to help meet the health needs of our communities. Kudos to all of you for your support. Together, we will persevere.

As we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, the board and I appreciate your flexibility. We have had to cancel several events this year, and we understand that taking care of our patients and staff takes priority in times like these. The September 21-24 in-person education event has been postponed, and we are actively engaged in discussions with ACHE around hosting a series of virtual events later this fall. Through the end of 2020, ACHE members may now earn Face-to-Face Education credits virtually from their home or office. We understand that continuing education and receiving the credits you need to reach or maintain your FACHE credential are important. Your local chapter is committed to providing these educational opportunities virtually. Please stay tuned for more details.

Mahalo for all that you do, be safe.

Thank you,

Andrew
