President's Message

Happy Holidays to All THEF Members,

2010 is coming to an end and from the feedback we received from you, it was a great educational year for the Triad Healthcare Executive Forum.

The Chapter conducted four educational sessions facilitated by excellent local speakers. All of our speakers are senior healthcare executives from different health systems in Triad. Topics of interest were chosen based on previous feedback we received from you and these were, “Leading a Successful Multigenerational Organization”, “Your Career GPS”, “Medical Staff Relations”, and our annual “Legal Update”.  Of special note, the Annual Meeting was a huge success. We had the largest audience in attendance of record for this end of year meeting. The fact that we had significant changes in the healthcare field with the passing of Health Reform, and consequently change in the House of Congress, that may explain the major interest and attendance to this Legal Update. 

On behalf of all THEF members, I wanted to say a huge thank you to all of our 2010 speakers who shared their wealth of knowledge and experience, and as a result, made our chapter the local resource of healthcare education for many of our members and non-members.

At the Annual Meeting the proposed 2011 Board of Directors slate of officers were presented and approved by all members present. The 2011 THEF Board of Directors areas follows: Pamela Sinclair, President; Sam Seifert, President-Elect; Wendy Hicks, Treasurer/Secretary; Preston Hammock, Director; and Paul Jeffrey, Director.

At this time I would like to thank you for allowing me to serve as the 2010 President of the Board of Directors. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with a great team of colleagues to be able to facilitate education and network opportunities for you the members of the Triad Healthcare Executive Forum.


Paul A. Jeffrey
2010 Board of Directors
