Aloha Chapter Members!

2019 continues to be a busy year with events that offer face to face credits and qualified education hours right here in Hawaii.

On October 25th, we held our inaugural Emerging Leaders Boot Camp at Pali Momi Medical Center. Thank you Gidget for hosting this event! We were honored to have Vice Admiral Raquel Bono as our keynote speaker, as well as to have other executive leaders from Hawaii’s healthcare organizations share their insights and leadership skills. The reviews were fantastic, and I would recommend this be an annual educational offering. Thank you for all the hard work and effort it took to plan and organize this successful event! I also was so pleased to see our Guam team in force at this event.
On November 14th and 15th, we offered the 2019 Leadership in Action Conference. It was held at the beautiful Kahala Hotel & Resort, in collaboration with the American Organization for Nursing Leadership, Hawaii (AONL), The Hawaii-Pacific Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and the Hawaii State Center for Nursing. This was another well attended event with great speakers.  Some of the highlights included:
•    Leveraging EBP to Move Your Organization from Great to Excellent by Lynn Gallagher-Ford
•    Leading Change and Creating a Culture of EBP for Quality Improvement by Linda Quinn Everett
•    Inclusion Healthcare Leadership: Room in the Tent for All by Mary Beth Kingston
•    Becoming a Leader: A personal Story on Humanistic Leader Development by Diane Ball
•    Evolution of Health Care Leadership by Lt. Governor Josh Green   

As we come to the close of 2019, I would like to say thank you for granting me the privilege to serve as your chapter president. I look forward to continuing to support the ACHE Hawai’i-Pacific Chapter as past-president and seeing all the amazing opportunities that we can provide in the future. I wish Andrew Giles, the incoming president, the very best! Andrew has some great ideas to make our chapter even better. 
Wishing you all Safe & Happy Holidays.
