Message from Chapter President

Martha Smith, FACHE

Greetings everyone! It is hard to believe that it’s spring already! Our board has been busy working in our various committees to improve your chapter services. 

Greetings everyone! 

It is hard to believe that it’s spring already! Our board has been busy working in our various committees to improve your chapter services. We’ve heard from many of you about your needs regarding the importance of education, networking and access to credit for certification. 

Our Education Committee, led by LTC Robert Rawleigh is working on a strategic plan that we hope will help with immediate and future needs. Be on the look out for a survey coming soon from your education committee asking for your feedback as to your interest, educational needs and how you prefer to receive information. We have planned a networking function at Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women and Children on May 21 from 5-6:30 p.m., for those of you who would like to meet the board and other members of the chapter. Please save the date and we will send out more details as the date gets closer. 

We have some exciting educational opportunities coming up, with the Healthcare Financial Management Association on April 15 and our annual breakfast, held the morning of the Healthcare Association of Hawai‘i annual membership meeting on July 17. Both will provide you with the opportunity for credit for certification.  Check out the details in the newsletter. I had the chance to attend the annual Congress meeting in Chicago. The sessions were very informative, we had a number of participants from Hawai'i.

I look forward to working with you over this year as your president of the Hawai‘i ACHE Chapter.

Martha Smith, FACHE
