participated in a recent Quarterly Chapter Call coordinated by Ms. Terra Levin,
FACHE, CAE, Regional Director at ACHE. The primary goal of these quarterly
calls is to allow each chapter the opportunity to update the group on their
respective programs, ideas, challenges or any other pertinent matters of
interest. For me there were a few somewhat obvious but important takeaways.
|From the Desk of the KAHCE President|
- Each of the 18 chapters
comprising District 4 have both variant and similar challenges.
- The program ideas
shared from other chapters may be worthy of some assessment by KAHCE as we move
forward with our agenda.
- Our Kansas Chapter
programs and effort on behalf of our members are as well
organized and executed as other chapters.
- ACHE is prepared
to provide guidance and assistance to our chapter as it works with all chapters
to strengthen what we do for the membership.
listened, my appreciation for the work of chapter leadership during the past
year became very clear. Our efforts in modifying our committees, among other
strategic moves, has enhanced our ability to respond and to strengthen what we
do. These efforts have also been noticed by the officers, governors, regents
and staff at ACHE.
have just received notice that the Kansas Chapter has earned the ACHE Award of
Chapter Merit, one that ACHE attributes to the work of leadership throughout
the past year. As a member of the Executive Committee during 2016, this award
reminded me of the significant efforts made by our immediate Past President,
Patricia Sanders-Hall, MA, FACHE. With her continuous attention, we have become
better organized and prepared to more effectively lead this organization. Thank
you, Patricia, for all of this hard work. For any of you at the ACHE Congress
on Tuesday, March 28, 2017, the chapter awards will be presented as part of the
Malcolm T. MacEachern Luncheon.
