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.
Greetings Everyone,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. It was inspiring to be among the men and women who are leading and managing our professional association.
