Rio Grande Valley LPC

Rio Grande Valley LPC Chair, Ricardo Flores

Dear fellow ACHE members,

As incoming chair of the Rio Grande Valley Chapter, I would like to take a moment to thank Rashmi Chandran our previous chair for the fine leadership, and also to highlight a few of the exciting things coming our way in 2022.

I would like to extend gratitude to our previous leader who has positioned us to be a part of the South Texas Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives. She has paved the way for healthcare professionals in the Rio Grande Valley to be part of an organization prided on offering exceptional educational events, a gateway to professional development and a strong network of members. As we have done in previous years, we will have multiple networking opportunities and face-to-face events that will allow you to continue accumulating hours towards your fellow, but most importantly make meaningful connections with other healthcare executives in the Rio Grande Valley.

There are several events in the making, and we will announce them in due course.

Our objective with all events is three-fold:

  • To provide valuable content to existing ACHE membership.
  • To raise awareness of ACHE within the healthcare community.
  • To foster opportunities to recruit new members.

I welcome you to accelerate your journey and together, let’s make this year, your year of continued success. It’s about making connections and learning new ways to improve the overall care we provide to our community. Let your local Rio Grande Valley LPC be the invisible force, stringing connections that make up your network even when you can’t see them. Our goal is to ensure you are always connected, pulling you forward and bringing  you closer towards your professional goals.

I hope to see and hear from you throughout 2022! Have a healthy, safe, and happy New Year!

Ricardo Flores
