President's Message

by Jeremy Armstrong, FACHE

KAHCE moving forward in 2011...

Thank you!  It is a short but powerful phrase that we should share more often.  I want to thank you, the KAHCE membership, for your continued support of our chapter. Your membership, volunteerism, and participation are all vital to the success and improvement of our chapter. 

Your feedback is also important to our efforts to continually improve.  We want to hear from you about how we can do better.  As a KAHCE member, you should have received an e-mail from ACHE asking you to complete an online chapter survey.  If you’ve completed the survey, thank you – again. If you haven’t completed it yet, please take a few minutes to fill it out.   These surveys help us better understand your needs.  You are also welcome to e-mail me, Jeremy.armstrong@slhmarion.org  with any ideas or suggestions.

I saw several familiar faces at our two-day education event on June 21-22.  Caldwell Butler & Associates offered several excellent ideas in their session titled, “Aggressively Improve Cost, Quality, and Throughput.”  Day two involved education panels regarding "Developing High Performance Teams" and "Managing for Morale-Effective Management Techniques to Retain Your Staff."   Attendance was very good, and I look forward to the remaining education sessions scheduled for August and November.  Please see the education section for dates and times.

As always, thank you for your support and participation.  I look forward to seeing you at our next event.
