ACHE of Iowa Regent Message
Message from Your ACHE Regent - Fall 2015

 

Happy Autumn!

Whether you participated in RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa), went on a family vacation or hit the State Fair, I hope all of you enjoyed the summer. I thank you for your continued support of ACHE and the healthcare profession that we are all privileged to be in.

One of the most important ACHE policy statements in my opinion is the Responsibility for Mentoring. ACHE believes healthcare executives have a professional obligation to mentor those entering the field whether students, early careerists, mid careerists or senior executives preparing to move to larger and more complex organizations. I would ask you to reflect on those people who made a difference in your career through mentoring. We owe it to the patients and communities we serve to do this for others.

The following are taken from the policy statement on ways that all of us can provide guidance and assistance to others:

  • Offer externships, internships, post graduate fellowships to students and early careerists.
  • Serve as a guest lecturer to a college or university (University of Iowa and Des Moines University) or a presenter at an ACHE chapter program.
  • Participate in established mentoring programs such as ACHE’s Leadership Mentoring Network.
  • Promote mentoring opportunities within your organization.
  • Encourage development of mentoring opportunities in culturally diverse, cross-generational and group settings.


As I am in the final year of my term as Regent, please consider running for the position. Feel free to contact me directly (david.stark@unitypoint.org) to discuss the role, time commitments and requirements. It is a rewarding way to serve our field and ACHE.

Thanks for all you do to promote mentoring and act as an example for others. We are better off because of it!

Warm regards,
David Stark, FACHE
Regent for Iowa
