Message From The STC ACHE President
Karla Krueger-Strawn, MHA
The STC-ACHE received the results of our annual Chapter Member Needs Survey. This survey was sent to all members of the Chapter in a July email from ACHE.
STC ACHE had a 41.2% response rate (193 of 468), which is on par with the national response rate of 41.8% (10,330 of 24,725). Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the survey.
The survey will be reviewed in depth during the Chapter Boards annual planning retreat in December. Survey results will be used to make improvements to the educational programming and resources provided to the membership each year.
In terms of the educational Chapter events provided, the survey indicated that membership is satisfied and prefers shorter sessions with 30-60 days notice. Overall, the STC-ACHE scored above the national average and made several improvements over our 2010 scores.
Another great message from the Chapter survey is that Chapter members that are willing to volunteer. Our Chapter is always in need of more ideas, more hands, and willing members to increase the value we can bring to our membership. The Chapters current structure includes the following committees: Audit, Program, Membership, Communication, and Advancement.
Below is a short description of the responsibilities of each committee and the Chairperson. Please use the email address to contact the Committee Chair if you have interest serving a specific committee.
Thank you again for completing the annual Chapter Member Needs survey. The Board will be reviewing the results and using them to plan for Chapter improvement in 2012.
