Message from the Chapter President
Andrew Giles, MBA, FACHE

*Please note that this message was composed prior to March 2020.

I hope your 2020 is off to a great start.  It’s an honor to represent the Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter of ACHE as President this year.  I’m most looking forward to networking with our members, sharing best practices, and coordinating educational opportunities so we can continue to advance the quality of healthcare being provided here in the islands.  In January, we held our first board meeting of the year, as well as our annual strategy session to ensure we are aligned with the needs of our community and our membership.  Our focus this year will be in three key areas: Networking, Education, and Philanthropy.  This year’s activities kick off with the Annual ACHE congress, held this year from March 23rd – 26th at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago.  ACHE's Congress on Healthcare Leadership gathers more than 4,200 leaders from the healthcare leadership community for this annual premier education and networking event, we hope to see you there.  We also have several great social and educational events scheduled locally in the coming months, calendars will be distributed shortly.  Lastly, I wanted to touch on our philanthropic efforts this year.  We will be partnering with H4, a comprehensive service facility serving Oahu's chronically homeless population.  In the coming months, you’ll see additional information released about how you and your organization are able to help with supplies and other toiletries for H4.  Social determinants of health have real impacts on the outcomes of Hawaii’s homeless, and what better way to show solidarity, partnering as a chapter to help this cause.  Thank you for being a member of this great organization, and I hope to connect with you all at one of our upcoming events!
