From the President's Desk

2011 is shaping up nicely! We have many to thank for that.

Our new board members bring a wealth of experience in supporting healthcare from multiple vantage points. Thanks go out to: Grace Wakulchik, Al Matyas, Chris Masone, Dan Barr, FACHEKim Williams, Jeff Kovacs, and Richard Adams, FACHE. All have agreed to support not only our Board interactions and educational offerings, but also our committee work through leadership of specific efforts.

Like our outgoing Regent, our Regent-elect is someone who has been a strong supporter of healthcare leadership and excellence in care. Thank you, Jan Murphy, FACHE, for your willingness to serve in this very active role on our behalf.

Our Program Committee, perhaps the most intense of our committees, is pulling together a strong schedule for the balance of the year. We very much appreciate the leadership of Tony Warmuth, FACHE, for these efforts.

I personally am quite grateful to our President-elect, Mike Scocos. He has been willing to step to the plate for me on conference calls for which I have a schedule conflict, assuring that HEANO will not miss important information from ACHE.

Thanks to all who support lifelong learning though our chapter, whether by presenting, attending, or sponsoring events.
