|Message from your ACHE Regent, Spring 2016|
Welcome to 2016!
I’d like to thank Gidget Ruscetta, FACHE for her leadership in 2015 as the Chapter President. Gidget and the board did an outstanding job moving the Chapter forward with educational programs, networking events and the opportunity for Face to Face credits.
Help me welcome the incoming Chapter President - Art Gladstone, FACHE. Art is the CEO of Straub Clinic & Hospital and Pali Momi Medical Center and has been dedicated to our local Chapter for a number of years. You can expect another year of programs and networking opportunities for our members.
If your goal is to become board certified as a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, I have an important update for members: there is a change from the prior promotion period of March 1–June 30 to allow Fellow applicants more time to meet all requirements by year-end, thereby giving them the opportunity to participate in the Convocation Ceremony held at the annual Congress on Healthcare Leadership. The Board of Governors Exam Fee Waiver Campaign began February 1, 2016 and ends May 31, 2016. Please visit the ACHE website for more information and check out how to prepare for the Board of Governors Exam on line.
My contact information is listed below – call or email anytime.
