Message from the Regent


Aloha Hawai‘i Pacific Chapter, 
The end of 2018 is near with the holidays in full swing. Hat's off to your Chapter Leadership for once again hosting a well-attended Mix and Mingle on October 2, 2018. There are so many new faces and so much to share as we continue our journey of lifelong learning together. As I mentioned at the event, I encourage all of you to keep stretching, connecting, and building relationships in your community, state, and across the globe. You are the future, and ACHE is your partner as you continue to explore what tomorrow's healthcare industry has to offer. As you all know, a career in healthcare is not for the faint of heart, and your ACHE community is here to learn and grow with you along the way.

Chapter Mix and Mingle on October 2, 2018
It was a pleasure seeing our chapter members at the AONE/ ACHE/ HSCN conference on Friday, November 9, 2018 at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. This one-day conference "LEADERSHIP IN ACTION" featured many helpful leadership topics around connecting generations, engaging the committed workforce, and much more. Our keynote speaker Michael E. Frisina, PhD presented the topic of "Leading the Brain to Higher Levels of Performance." This opportunity is another example of Hawai'i ACHE Chapter's commitment to supporting your leadership education. Continue to reach out, connect with others in your area of interest, healthcare leaders and alike. 
Congress is scheduled for March 4-7, 2019. I encourage all of you to take advantage of the link ACHE provided and submit for a full or partial scholarship so you can continue participating and engaging with your peers and focus on advancing healthcare management excellence for all ACHE members.

As a reminder from our national ACHE team: Because time is so precious, we want to be sure the time you are spending as volunteer leaders for your local ACHE community has maximum impact. The attached New Member Engagement Toolkit is designed to enable your chapter to take focused, meaningful efforts that will encourage other new members of your chapter to become active. That is the first step in building strong and lasting relationships that will benefit both the member and our professional community. 
Thank you for everything you do to support your local ACHE Chapter and healthcare executives colleagues across Hawai'i and beyond!
I wish you and your families a wonderful holiday season and look forward to connecting in the New Year.
