From the Desk of the KAHCE President

Trenton Stringer

First off, let me start by saying that I hope you are all healthy and safe. As COVID-19 makes its way across the country, I cannot help but feel relieved that our members are leading the way in their communities as we all fight this pandemic. My thoughts go out to each and every one of you as we all do everything we can to flatten the curve while also not neglecting our standard responsibilities. There will undoubtedly be more late nights and weekend conference calls for all of us, so I wish you and your families the best of luck as you continue to make sacrifices.  

As the new 2020 KAHCE President, the Board and I are excited to bring another successful year to our members. We had a great Strategic Planning session back in November and had a full year mapped out to bring 12 face-to-face credits, a roster of great speakers to bring you all qualified education credits, advancement opportunities, and various collaborations in place. However, as with all of our work plans, COVID-19 has interrupted our chapter’s plans. After ACHE cancelled Congress, we decided to follow suit and cancel our spring education event in Manhattan, Kansas. If things return to normal in the summer, we will attempt to plan another event. If COVID-19 is still affecting our communities, then we will see everyone at our fall event on September 9, 2020 in Overland Park.

Again, thank you for your dedication to your communities. During these times, healthcare administration might not be the most glamorous job and is sometimes thank-less, but rest assured that someone gets to spend a little longer with their loved ones because of your work and planning. Keep up the great fight and see you all soon!

Best Regards,
Trenton D. Stringer
KAHCE President
