Aloha Hawaii-Pacific Chapter!

The Hawaii-Pacific Chapter of ACHE is committed to providing professional education opportunities so our members and fellows can obtain and maintain FACHE status.  The education committee continues to explore avenues to provide unique opportunities for members to obtain Face-to-Face (F2F) credits as well as Qualified Education Credits (QEC) without having to travel out-of-state.
This fall, the education committee is very excited to offer two leadership training and educational opportunities.  The first is our annual Leadership In Action (LIA) Conference at the beautiful Kahala Hotel & Resort.  The LIA Conference is a two day event, Thursday and Friday, November 14 and 15.  The second is our first ever Leadership Bootcamp on Friday, October 25 at Pali Momi Medical Center.  Please feel free to contact Kristen Croom if you have questions or concerns about claiming Qualified Education Credits. If you have an idea for a F2F event please email Kristen at; we are always looking for more ideas. 
As a member of the education committee we would like to thank all of you for continued support and participation in our local chapter.

With regards,

Kristen Croom
Co-Chair, Education Committee
