President's Message Fall 2020
Roxanne Rosa, FACHE

Dear Members,

As 2020 draws to a close, I’m sure that most people are anxiously awaiting the New Year and an opportunity to say goodbye to what I’m sure was a very difficult time for everyone.   This year has been full of challenges; politically, professionally, and personally, and I’m saddened to know the weight of the burden for many.  However, I am encouraged that through it all, there is still a sense of community, compassion, and innovation that will carry us through. 

As a Chapter, I am proud of what we accomplished.  I want to say a special thank you to Brian Turner, Programs Chair, for his outstanding commitment to education and Membership value.  Through his leadership, we far exceeded the 12 face-to-face credit hours allowed per Chapter each year by participating in CHOICE events through nationals in addition to local panel discussions.  This is unprecedented and very much an accomplishment at a time when many other Chapters went dormant.

In 2021, we will have several new board members bringing their thoughts and ideas to the table. Together with our tenured board, we will look to continue to provide as much value as possible to our members during this minimal contact time.  Look for upcoming virtual events for qualified, face-to-face, volunteer, and social networking opportunities and visit both the local and national ACHE websites for further information. 




Roxanne Rosa, FACHE
