Aloha Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter

As you surely know, the ACHE Board of Governers and Leadership Team made the decision to cancel the 2020 Congress on Health Care Leadership. The decision was made to support the need for leaders and health care organizations to manage responses to COVID-10, and to protect the health of participants and the community. However, we recognize that some ACHE Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter members may have planned to employ the educational opportunities at Congress to obtain ACHE Face-to-Face (F2F) Education credits and CEUs to recertify their FACHE credentials, and may be concerned now about how to fulfill those requirements.

All members of ACHE can take advantage of the many opportunities available to earn CEUs and F2F credits. E-Learning options include webinars, online seminars, and self-study courses. In-person event offerings and executive programs combine live instruction and opportunities to collaborate with other health care leaders. There are in-person sessions scheduled later this year and, while these planned events are subject to change, ACHE will continue to offer information on available options. Visit for more information.
The Board of Governers and Leadership are also looking into alternative national and local educational options for F2F and Qualified Education offerings. The Hawaii-Pacific Chapter of ACHE is committed to providing professional education opportunities to enable our members and fellows to obtain and maintain FACHE status. This past fall, the education committee offered both the annual Leadership in Action Conference and the first Leadership Boot Camp. Watch for information on opportunities for 2020 at If you have an idea for an F2F event, please email Kristen.
We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we adjust to changing needs and conditions.

With regards,

The Education Committee
