Message from the Chapter President

Darlena Chadwick, MSN, MBA, FACHE

New Chapter President, Darlena Chadwick ushers us into 2019 and shares her strengthened passion and enthusiasm for healthcare along with its many challenges and opportunities. She invites all members to further energize the chapter through participation in chapter events and volunteerism.


It is my honor and pleasure to serve as your 2019 ACHE Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter President. I had the opportunity to attend ACHE Congress which has strengthened my enthusiasm and passion in the healthcare field. We face many challenges in the ever changing healthcare world though together we can make positive changes. 
Thank you for the dedication and commitment from our members and board leadership, which resulted in the recognition “Chapter Management & Awards Program Award for Chapter Excellence for 2018” for the Hawai'i-Pacific chapter at Congress this year. 
ACHE is committed to life-long learning, embracing the power of knowledge and how it drives positive change, within oneself and one’s organization. Our board has been working hard to organize educational and networking events to help support our members in their professional development and growth. Some upcoming events in 2019 include: Social Events, New Member Breakfast, Annual Chapter Breakfast, and AONL/HFMA Conferences.  
We welcome all volunteers to participate and be active in our chapter activities as it will take a team to achieve our goals. I look forward to seeing you throughout the year. 

Thank you,


Darlena Chadwick, MSN, MBA, FACHE
