A Message from Your THEF President - Heather Jacobson
A message from your THEF President.
Happy New Year, THEF Colleagues!
I am excited for all that 2017 has in store, and I look forward to serving the chapter as your President.
First, I want to start by thanking immediate past President Jessica Landin, FACHE, and my fellow THEF Board members for their leadership and contributions in 2016. Last year the board coordinated four Face-to-Face credit education events, two networking events and community service opportunities. Additionally, we secured additional sponsorship support to help keep these events at a low cost to our members!
The 2017 THEF Board held their annual treat in November and has been busy planning chapter activities, growing our committees, developing new programs, partnering with other healthcare organizations and securing sponsorship support. I look forward to serving with our Co-chairs and committee members this year in order to achieve our 2017 goals.
Our 2017 Goals include:
1) Increase membership engagement and satisfaction.
2) Remain financially viable and develop a plan to generate additional financial resources for the chapter.
sustainability of chapter operations through effective leadership practices
by sustaining active board engagement during board operations and chapter
events, completing Chapter Governance self-assessments and developing strong
succession planning to cultivate continued strength in the board leadership for
4) Increase brand awareness and perceived value among members and key stakeholders in healthcare leadership in order to promote ACHE's Mission, Vision and Core Values.
We need your help to achieve our chapter goals. Work, life and family, can make us feel that we do not have time to take on more. However, one thing I have learned as an ACHE member is that the more you put in, the more you get out. I encourage you to find at least one thing you can contribute to help strengthen the chapter and enhance your experience.
A few ideas to get you thinking:
