ACHE of Iowa President Message
Spring Update

Hello ACHE Colleagues!

I am delighted and honored to have the opportunity to serve as president of ACHE of Iowa this year. I truly believe in the importance and value of professional development and networking, and membership in ACHE affords us exactly those opportunities. We owe it to our field to continue to advance our skills throughout our careers, and we owe it to ourselves to meet and learn from our professional colleagues. I have met so many talented people outside my usual professional circle through ACHE. I hope you will take advantage of your membership to do the same this year.

Over the last several years, our chapter has been focused on enhancing our educational offerings. This year, we hope to offer as many as 12 ACHE Face-to-Face credits right here in Iowa. With attention to our chapter’s events calendar and some advance planning, you can earn the credits you need to advance or re-certify as a Fellow in Iowa, without costing beyond your annual ACHE membership dues.

Advance your credentials, develop your skills, and meet new colleagues – it’s like the Triple Crown! We hope to see you at an ACHE of Iowa event this year.

 

Michelle Niermann, FACHE

President, ACHE of Iowa

Executive Vice President / COO, UnityPoint Health – Cedar Rapids
