Message from the IHEF President

I hope you enjoy this holiday season with your friends and family. As you reflect on the challenges and accomplishments of 2011 and set goals and plans for 2012, I encourage you to include IHEF and ACHE in those plans. There are opportunities to lead, teach, learn and network through serving with IHEF and participating in our events that are held right here in Idaho.

In October, I enjoyed visiting with many of you at our IHEF/ACHE annual luncheon and educational program during the IHA Conference at Sun Valley. If you attended both our summer and fall education programs you have been able to earn 4.5 Category I credits for a combined cost of $85 in tuition at events within our state. Please watch for additional programs and opportunities to earn your education credits and network with Idaho peers at future IHEF events.

Our next chapterwide program will be a combined IHEF/HFMA program on Friday, January 20 in Boise. Our speaker will be Ron Price, CEO of Price Associates and his topic will be, “Leadership Capacity: Growing it in Yourself and Others.” This program will qualify for Category II credits. For additional information and to register please use the following link:

Congratulations to Sandee Moore, FACHE, who was elected to serve as our next Idaho Regent. Dave McFadyen, FACHE, will begin his term as IHEF President in January. We wish you both the best as you assume these leadership positions in 2012.

As I conclude my term as IHEF President, I would like to thank our Regent Wade Johnson, FACHE, our Board, our education presenters and panelists and all of our members that have helped make IHEF a successful ACHE chapter. I am excited about our accomplishments and the direction IHEF is headed and trust that it will continue to be a valuable professional resource to our members.


Stephen Stoddard, FACHE
