Dear ACHE of Iowa Members,

I hope your 2017 is off to a great start! It is an honor and privilege to serve as your chapter president this year.

First and foremost, I want to thank you for your membership in ACHE. I appreciate your commitment to our profession and your involvement in our chapter. Together we will advance ACHE’s vision to be the preeminent professional society for healthcare executives dedicated to improving health and its mission to advance our members and healthcare management excellence. This year in Iowa, we hope to grow our membership and continue to enhance the value of ACHE to our local chapter members.

Second, we will continue to provide quality educational programs in Iowa. We will host seminars and networking events as well as continue to provide Face to Face credit programs as part of the Iowa Hospital Association’s Summer Forum and the University of Iowa College of Public Health’s Healthcare Executive Symposium in the Fall.

Please reach out to me at if you have any questions about our chapter. I hope to make ACHE of Iowa meaningful to you as we work together to enhance health care in our local communities.


Timothy Ahlers
