Welcome Back from the 2012-2013 Chairman, Gayle L. Capozzalo, FACHE

Whether you are a student returning to a campus for the fall semester or one who takes classes via distance learning, I encourage you to allow your ACHE membership to complement your academic training.

I joined ACHE as a graduate student looking for job opportunities. Over the years, the organization has provided me an opportunity to network with so many interesting colleagues and has become the primary source of my professional contacts.

There are numerous ways that ACHE can enhance this period in your life. Here are just a few:

  • Your local ACHE chapter can be an excellent resource for networking and continuing education. All members are automatically a member of their local ACHE chapter. Go to to identify yours.
  • ACHE’s Congress on Healthcare Leadership is one of the largest gatherings of healthcare leaders in the world. Congress, which features a Student Track, provides an unparalleled opportunity for networking and career enhancement.
  • I encourage you to use ACHE’s Code of Ethics and Ethical Policy Statements as primary reference points for ethical performance and decision making. Study and consider ethical issues as you refine the values that will guide you throughout your career.
  • I have learned, and continue to learn, from my friends, colleagues, boss, board members and students, and I urge you to take advantage of the experience of those around you. ACHE has a compilation of articles from Healthcare Executive’s former column, “Leadership in Mentoring,” that provide practical steps for both mentors and protégés to help them get the most out of their mentoring experience.

Successful healthcare leaders are lifelong learners, and ACHE is a source for that learning. During your time as a student ACHE is there to help you lay the foundation for a successful career.
