Message from Your ACHE Regent

With the spring season upon us, I hope this Regent update finds you well.

Congratulations to Michael J. McDonough, FACHE elected as the new Regent. His term begins at the close of the Council of Regents meeting in Chicago on March 25, 2017.

The ACHE Regent Breakfast and Awards Program was held on January 20, 2017 at the Princeton Hyatt. Fellow colleagues from the New Jersey health care industry joined the event. Christine C. Winn, FACHE, the ACHE Governor for District 1, was the guest speaker. 

The Regent Awards was presented at the breakfast on January 20, 2017. Please join me in congratulating the recipients:

  • Paula A. Gutierrez –  Early Careerist
  • Philip J. Driscoll Jr., FACHE – Senior Careerist
  • Anne Donoghue, Johnson and Johnson – Business Partner
  • Elizabeth A. Ryan – Lifetime

On October 24, 2016 the ACHE-NJ Board conducted a Strategic Planning Retreat represented by board members, committee chairs and committee members. Gerard J. Berish, CAE, ACHE Regional Director for Districts 1 and 5, participated in the ACHE-NJ Retreat.

The ACHE Fall District Meeting and Chapter Leaders Conference was scheduled in September in Chicago. Nationally, all but two chapters were represented. The findings and recommendations of the Credentialing Task Force were presented and discussed.

The 2017-2019 Strategic Plan was one of the topics of the ACHE Leadership. The ACHE Board of Governors will review feedback from the Regents and address at the November 2016, ACHE Board of Governors meeting.  

Thank you for your support and participation in the American College of Healthcare Executives.

Nancy DiLiegro, PhD, FACHE
ACHE Regent for New Jersey - Northern
