Message from THEF's President

Dear fellow members of THEF,

My name is Neil Kinard, and I am happy to write to you in my first president’s message.

Triangle Healthcare Executives’ Forum is proud to present to you a valuable chapter program of events and resources for the 2015 calendar year. With this year’s ACHE Congress’ focus on placing Leadership at Center Stage, THEF’s board understands the responsibility that comes with delivering to you meaningful educational events and collaborating with organizations, academic programs, and other professional associations in maintaining a tight-knit healthcare community within the Triangle.

Over the past four years, we have:

·         Maintained a high standard of very strong educational programming;

·         Diversified our membership;

·         Collaborated with graduate programs at The University of Mount Olive, Pfeiffer University, University of NorthCarolina at Chapel Hill, and Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and Medical School;

·         Promoted and encouraged our members to advance to Fellow status; and

·         Grown our networking events in number and attendance, seeing familiar and new faces at each one.

In October 2014, THEF put on its first all-day event in quite some time. The Innovation Summit held on October 23 at Embassy Suites in Cary, NC offered 4.0 hours of Face-to-Face education credit through three different panels. THEF’s Education Committee plans to follow that up in 2015 with the Transformative Care Summit, an all-day event on Sept 17. Please stay tuned for details.

Please see our article regarding Events as well as our website for topics and dates as we plan to:

  • Host a day-long education event
  • Conduct at least two joint education events
  • Host three networking events
  • Encourage more executive involvement
  • Host an Executive Breakfast for THEF members only
  • Engage more volunteers
  • Increase sponsorships to $10k

So, on behalf of the board, thank you for your membership. Thank you for your commitment to helping to build on the success of this chapter. And thank you for sharing your thoughts and ideas with us.


Neil Kinard, FACHE

2015 President of THEF
