SERVING OUR MEMBERSHIP WELL

My name is Jeffrey Egnatovich and I am proud to begin serving as President of ACHENJ. I am a member of the Hackensack Meridian Health family and the Caldwell University Healthcare Administration program. Eight years ago a colleague recommended I join ACHENJ to increase my educational and networking opportunities as a healthcare leader and I have been an active member ever since. I was encouraged to pursue leadership positions within ACHENJ that helped me grow as a leader and contribute to the chapter. Serving in these positions have been invaluable experiences to me both personally and professionally. I look forward to serving as chapter President along with an exceptionally talented board.
The Chapter held a Strategic Planning Retreat in October 2016, assisted by Gerard J. Berish, CAE, ACHE Regional Director for Districts 1 and 5, and mapped out our approach. We are on a “Journey to a Chapter of Excellence” as measured by national standards of Member Satisfaction, Education and Networking, Net Membership Growth, and Advancement of Eligible members.

On Saturday, March 25, 2017 I was introduced as the Regent for New Jersey – Northern at the American College of Healthcare Executives [ACHE] Council of Regents meeting in Chicago. It is with great pride and humility that I accept this role as your representative. I attended the New Regents Orientation, the Council of Regents meeting, the Annual Membership meeting and the ACHE Convocation during the March 24th weekend.
