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
