President's Message
By Alan S. Weisman, FACHE

As I begin the second year of my 2-year term as your President, I wanted to thank the MAHCE Board of Directors for their commitment and hard work to make the past year a success and to our members for participating in our networking events. In the following months, MAHCE will host two educational/networking evening events, July 17 and November 13 (please note that the venue for these evening events has changed to Sheraton Columbia Town Center), which will afford our membership the opportunity to gain knowledge and information on various topics in healthcare, as well as networking with peers and others in the healthcare field. In addition, MAHCE will hold a joint all-day meeting with NCHE (3 Face to Face credits) on May 20 at University of Maryland University College in Largo, Md. Our all-day MAHCE Face-To-Face educational meeting, which is one of the highlights of the year, is scheduled for September 18, 2014 at Sheppard Pratt Conference Center in Towson. You will find that the quality of the programming for this event is extraordinary and it is always well-attended. In addition, we will sponsor a Board of Governors exam review course this year. Please watch for announcements of these programs. You can access our website at

As a Board, we are hard at work identifying excellent educational opportunities for our members and focusing on increasing the quality and quantity of services we provide our membership. In addition, we continue to engage MAHCE corporate sponsors this year in our member events, and we remain dedicated to providing value to both our members and our corporate sponsors. We are always looking for volunteers for our various committees, which members find very rewarding. Please contact any of our Board members or myself if you are interested. We are very fortunate that MAHCE is one of the largest and most active chapters in the country. The participation of our members has continually grown over the past years and we are committed to serving you.

I hope to see you at our next program on March 20, 2014. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments regarding our chapter activities. My email address is:

Best regards,
