Aloha Hawai’i-Pacific Chapter!
We are already proactively planning events for 2018. Please let us know if you have any events or suggestions!
Advancement to Fellow Local Study Options:
A key part of our Chapter Mission is to not only grow active members, but also to support the advancement to Fellow as well. Bottom line: we are here to support you!
To meet this end, in 2016, our chapter purchased three sets of the Board of Governors (BOG) Exam Study set as found on the ache.org website (a $240 value). We currently have them staged at Wilcox Medical Center (Kauai), Queens Medical Center (Oahu) and Hawaii Pacific Health (Oahu). Recently, we received a donation set available for us at Kaiser Medical Center! To sign-out for usage, you simply have to be a current member of ACHE, a member in our Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter, and be eligible (or near eligible) to test for the BOG Exam. Simply send me an email and I will connect you with the right POC. Direct POC information will be posted on our website soon!
NOTE: If any other member wishes to donate or share their books with ACHE Hawai’i-Pacific members, please contact me anytime.
Advance to Fellow/Recertification Reminders:
Education Requirements are 36 credit hours (12 Face-to-Face & 24 Qualified Education Credits), every three years if recertifying.
