On November 9th and 10th AONE Hawai‘i, Hawai‘i State Center for Nursing and the Hawai‘i-Pacific Chapter of ACHE had the first joint conference in Honolulu – “Leadership in Action: Partnering for Success”.. 

Aloha Chapter Members,

On November 9th and 10th AONE Hawai‘i, Hawai‘i State Center for Nursing and the Hawai‘i-Pacific Chapter of ACHE had the first joint conference in Honolulu – “Leadership in Action: Partnering for Success” at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.  Up to four face-to-face credits were available to ACHE members who attended. It was a great conference with exceptional speakers for both days.  There were five members who took advantage of the Hawai‘i-Pacific Chapter of ACHE scholarship program for the conference. 

Your local Chapter has the scholarship program plus the ACHE has a tuition waiver program available to members. Both these programs help to reduce the economic barriers to ACHE educational programming for ACHE members experiencing economic hardship.

ACHE makes available a limited number of tuition waivers to ACHE Members and Fellows whose organizations lack the resources to fund their tuition for education programs. Members and Fellows in career transition are also encouraged to apply. Tuition waivers are based on financial need. All requests are due no less than eight weeks before the program date.

There are waivers available from ACHE for Congress 2017, Clusters, Seminars, and Self Study Courses.  You can find the waivers on the ACHE website under the ‘Education’ tab.  I encourage members to take advantage of the assistance from the ACHE and your local Chapter.

Please reach out to me by phone or e-mail if you have questions.

Happy Holidays to you and your family from the Chapter.

Message from the Chapter President, Winter 2016

Art Gladstone, FACHE

What a wonderful year it has been made up of successful educational events, networking opportunities, new members, new fellows, and a thriving ACHE chapter. 

What a wonderful year it has been made up of successful educational events, networking opportunities, new members, new fellows, and a thriving ACHE chapter.  As my year as chapter president comes to a close and as we celebrate the holiday season, I reflect upon this past year and I am filled with gratitude.  I am thankful for the ACHE organization and the guidance provided by our colleagues in the national office.  I am thankful for an outstanding and committed board of directors; a group of individuals who are thoroughly committed to carrying out the mission of ACHE and through their work and actions make the Hawai‘i Chapter a vibrant organization.  I am thankful for the many volunteers who serve on committees, assist at functions, and lend a hand wherever one is needed.  I am thankful for our members--you are the reason that we exist.  As members you see the value as professionals in being part of ACHE, you seek to grow professionally, you network with your colleagues, and you make this organization relevant.  Finally, I am extremely grateful for the mission that we collectively serve in health care in that we provide care to those in need and in doing so we make our community a better place.  Our season of change continues and quite frankly we can become distracted with the unknowns of the future.  My hope is that you are all encouraged by the great work that you do.  I personally thank all of you for this work, and I ask that we all stay focused on making Hawai‘i a better place!

I wish you all a safe and happy holiday season.  I thank you for allowing me to serve as the President of the ACHE Hawai‘i Chapter and I look forward to continued great things from this organization.

 

Message from Incoming President

Nick Hughey RN,MBA, FACHE
ACHE is a tremendous professional organization and the Hawaii-Pacific chapter of ACHE is a dynamic chapter. I am looking forward to exciting 2017!  

I am honored to be the incoming President of the Hawaii-Pacific Chapter of ACHE in 2017.  The Chapter continues to grow due to commitment of our members and diligent leadership of Officers and Board.  I would like to thank Art Gladstone for stellar leadership of our Chapter in 2016 (Mahalo Art !)

The Hawaii-Pacific chapter has continued to see unprecedented growth and we are already planning for networking and education events for 2017.  Much has changed and continues to change in the healthcare landscape and there is certainly a measure of uncertainty.  One thing I am certain of, is the value of membership in ACHE and our chapter.  Networking and professional development are vital and ACHE is the leading education association for healthcare executive management in the nation.  ACHE is a tremendous professional organization and the Hawaii-Pacific chapter of ACHE is a dynamic chapter.  I am looking forward to exciting 2017!  

Happy Holidays,

Nick Hughey RN,MBA, FACHE

2016 Hawai'i Healthcare Leadership Conference

On behalf of the conference planning committee, I want to express my gratitude for all of our members who attended the conference and made the event a success.

On behalf of the conference planning committee, I want to express my gratitude for all of our members who attended the conference and made the event a success.  As Art mentioned, our members are the sole reason for our organization's existence and we are proud to offer a quality 2-day event providing networking and educational opportunities. 

The setting for the conference was the historic Royal Hawaiian Hotel, with a beautiful backdrop overlooking Waikiki Beach--and a reasonable buffer zone from tanning oil and 'speedos'.
