Message from your SHEF President
Brian Canfield, FACHE

Greetings to all of our Chapter members.  We hope that you have successfully carved out some quality time for yourselves and your families this summer.

We had a very successful Spring Education Forum in Wilmington this past April.  Our deepest appreciation go to our panelists, moderators, and our event planning team.  We raised the bar with this event and look forward to our upcoming Fall Education Forum on September 30 at Methodist University in Fayetteville.  We encourage all of you to plan to attend this very informative event. Register online by clicking here.  

Our Chapter continues to follow our Strategic Plan, but we still have room to improve on encouraging and assisting our members in advancing to Fellow by preparing for and taking the Board of Governors (BOG) exam.  There are a variety of ways to help prepare for this exam ranging from self-study to attending the ACHE Cluster study session.  Several Chapters in the Carolinas, Virginia, and Georgia have recently conducted BOG exam review sessions.  Our Sandhills Chapter is looking at this as an option in the upcoming year.  Let us know if you would be interested in participating on this.

There are also plenty of volunteer opportunities to become more involved with our chapter.  We encourage you to join us on one of the chapter's committees: 1) Event Planning Committee and 2) Communications Committee. We can also use your expertise as a panelist or moderator in an upcoming education session.  The time commitment is not significant and I am certain that many of you could easily fit one of these opportunities into your schedule.

Please let us know if you would be willing to assist with moving our Chapter forward.

Thanks again to each of you for all that you do in your respective organizations to help advance the health of our communities we serve.

 Brian Canfield, FACHE
