This newsletter brings us to the close of another year! I am proud to report that the South Texas Chapter – ACHE has made significant progress this year in a number of areas.
We achieved our goal in member satisfaction by reaching 80% for the first time. This was accomplished by a concerted effort to provide you with “value-added” educational, networking, and philanthropic activities and doing our best to publicize all our activities to you, our membership. We very much appreciate your vote of confidence and will do our best to continue to earn it! Again this year, the Chapter offered 12 face-to-face educational credits for you to take advantage of and educational opportunities in both Local Program Councils. The Chapter also offered a much larger number of Philanthropy and Community Relations activities for your participation. In almost all of these activities, you generated a waiting list wanting to participate. As a result, we plan to increase the number of opportunities we provide for you this next year. If you have specific opportunities you would like to see the Chapter offer, please let Joyce Brown or me know. The Chapter also offered a Student/ Early Careerist Educational opportunity in September that was very well received. In ending 2013 and beginning 2014, please remember this Chapter exists to serve you and to serve as your link to the American College of Healthcare Executives. We look forward to seeing each of you in 2014!
The Board of Directors and I wish each of you the Happiest of Holiday Seasons!
For Leaders Who Care!
