Aloha Everyone,

It’s hard to believe this year is coming to a close.  It seems as if we are just getting started! Your board team has done a phenomenal job this year.  I am very proud of the committee work and projects that we have completed.

  • LTC Tanya Peacock, FACHE, took the lead in a pilot leadership development program, resulting in a ‘revamped’ set of governing documents for the chapter.
  • CDR Robert Rawleigh, FACHE, did a fantastic job in coordinating educational offerings for 2013 and 2014, in addition to developing a scholarship program and process for the chapter.
  • Art Gladstone, FACHE, and Nick Hughey, FACHE, took the lead in engaging the Maui healthcare leadership which we hope will result in new members.
  • Our newsletter committee, led by Gidget Ruscetta, was recognized for their updated and comprehensive new look.

All of these initiatives have taken a lot of time and effort; it is because of this hard work that we have developed a strong infrastructure to carry forward into 2014 and beyond.

Congratulations to our incoming president, Darlena Chadwick, FACHE, and our president-elect, Lance Segawa, FACHE. We are very fortunate to have a succession plan made up of strong, committed healthcare leaders for our organization. I would also like to congratulate our incoming board officers and directors. Our election results can be found in the article entitled, "Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter Leadership election results for 2014" further on in the newsletter.

Thanks so much to everyone for your support and feedback throughout the year. Our chapter is only as strong as our membership. Please consider getting involved so we can make 2014 the most successful year ever.

Happy Holidays everyone and we look forward to seeing you at our 2014 events.

All the best,

Martha B. Smith, FACHE
