Message from Your ACHE Regent
What a hot dry summer in the state of New Hampshire!
This newsletter will be dedicated to Leadership.
To be a leader takes hard work, knowledge, and the ability to “live” the leadership way; in other words to be able to apply and live by certain values, traits and principles; including integrity, honesty and truthfulness. To transform from a manager to a leader requires dedication to the profession of leadership, to strive for excellence in all that we do and to follow a certain set of rules that define who we are and the way we lead.
Leaders should invest in building bridges, not walls; intellectualism and wisdom, not ignorance; stability, not fear; fairness, not hypocrisy; substance, not superficiality; character, not immaturity; transparency, not secrecy and truth, not lies.
It is our task as members and Fellows of the American College of Healthcare Executives to uphold the highest standards of leadership in our everyday dealings; to ensure that we hold ourselves and each other accountable for the high standards we have set for ourselves through our participation with ACHE.
This year’s fall event will be held on November 3 and 4 at the Stoweflake Inn and Resort in Stowe, Vermont. This year’s event will center on patient engagement and experience. The invites have been sent, so make sure you register and reserve your hotel room.
2017 ACHE Congress will be held in Chicago from March 27-30 at the Hilton Chicago. ACHE's Congress on Healthcare Leadership brings us professional development, opportunities to network with and learn from peers, and the latest information to enhance our career and address our organization's challenges in innovative ways. It’s never too early to start planning for your trip to next year’s event. If you have never been this is one event as a healthcare leader you need to attend.
