Challenge Yourself in 2021
Patrick Altenhofen, FACHE

Another new year is right around the corner, and with that, many of us will take on a variety of New Year’s resolutions. For 2021, I want to challenge any ACHE members to consider the resolution of advancement and a commitment to continued learning. FACHE is a great way to advance your knowledge and show the coveted acronym after your name.

As a reminder, the ACHE Board of Governors made the decision to change the membership tenure requirement for initial Fellow advancement from three years to one year effective Jan. 1, 2021. We remain confident the change will make Fellow status possible for more of our Members who meet the requirements and wish to advance to this important leadership level.

Keep in mind that while the membership tenure requirement was adjusted, the other  requirements for Members to obtain the FACHE credential remain the same.

If you have any questions about the FACHE requirements, the  deadline extensions or the process in general, please reach out to the ACHE Customer Service Center at or (312) 424-9400, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Central time.

I also want to remind members to keep tabs on the ACHE website for any virtual education events. These are a great way to get credits for advancement to FACHE as well as the opportunity to learn something new.

I hope everyone has safe and happy holidays! Cheers

Patrick Altenhofen, FACHE
