President's Message
Heather Fuller, FACHE

I’m sure many of you are ready for spring! I’m looking forward to warmer weather and getting out on the golf course. I’m also looking forward to our spring education event scheduled for April 24-25 in Wichita. Patricia Sanders-Hall and the Education Committee have done a great job putting together the program with an opportunity for you to earn up to 9 Facd-to-Face credits.

Our committee chairs have been working hard since our strategic planning retreat in December, but we need your help! I would like to invite you to get involved with one of our committees: education/scholarship, membership, mentoring, student/early careerist, KCLPC, or communications. The committees are a great way to network and become more involved in the chapter.

I’m excited to let you know that our chapter is participating in ACHE’s Chapter Leadership Collaborative. We will work to create guidelines to develop, support and recognize current and future leaders. There are 15 chapters from across the country participating in the collaborative this year.

I’m looking forward to serving the chapter this year. Please feel free to contact me at with any suggestions or questions!
