Message from your ACHE Regent

Jen Chahanovich, FACHE

I wanted to report about several successful events from the last few months.

Aloha Chapter Members– I wanted to thank all the members and guests that attended our annual breakfast on July 18. Our guest speaker was Hilton Raethel – the new President & CEO of the Healthcare Association of Hawai‘i.

Finally at our annual breakfast - two of our chapter members received the Regent Healthcare Executive Award. The criteria for the Regent awards are:

• A member of ACHE
• Demonstration of leadership ability
• Demonstration of innovation and creative management
• Executive capability in developing his or her organization and promoting its growth and stature in the community
• Participation in local, state, or provincial hospital and health association activities
• Participate in civic/community activities and projects
• Demonstration of participation in ACHE activities and interest in assisting ACHE in achieving its objectives.

Both of our awardees exceeded the criteria - congratulations to Major Angel L. Vargas, FACHE from the Air Force and Chuck Tanner, FACHE from Guam. Thank you both for your outstanding commitment to the healthcare profession.

Thank you again for supporting our local chapter – please feel free to contact me on my cell or email if you have questions.
