KAHCE Membership Update
David Fleming, FACHE

There have been some changes to the membership committee for 2014. Bob Bregant FACHE and I will be sharing the duties of the membership committee. Bob will focus on recruiting students in healthcare related undergraduate and graduate programs in Kansas, developing Early Careerist membership, Board of Governors exam and our webinar relationship with the South Texas Chapter. I will focus on networking across the state and membership overall for the chapter.

Our committee's strategic initiatives for 2014 include:

  • Incorporate networking at meetings of networks across the state
  • Highlighting the value of membership in both KAHCE and ACHE
  • Marketing the value of KAHCE to others across the state
  • Expanding our reach to other healthcare organizations outside of the hospital
  • Increasing our membership by 5% over last year
  • Expanding the membership committee
If you are an ACHE member new to Kansas, please update your membership profile at to assure you are recognized as a member of the Kansas Chapter.

We welcome your participation on the Membership Committee. The Committee does not require a great deal of time, and you will enjoy developing new relationships throughout the state. Please contact either Bob Bregant at or David Fleming at
