President's Message
Pamela M. Sinclair, FACHE

THEF members and colleagues,

It is hard to believe it is fall already and Halloween is right around the corner.

THEF's quarterly educational session in September was hosted by the Pfeiffer MBA/MHA class and was a great success. The students had poster sessions around the room, and they were very gracious with assisting in setting up the event and hosting. We had a great turnout of students!

The event was held at Wesley Long Education Center in Greensboro and it was a Category I panel discussion called "Bending the Execution Curve: Implementing Successful Organizational Change in Hospitals and Healthcare Organizations." The moderator was our very own past THEF president, Bob Byrd, FACHE, and he did a wonderful job creating great discussion around how large organizations implement and deal with change. The panelists were Aashka Mehta, Director and Nursing Home Administrator Penn Nursing Center, Angie Orth, VP Regional development and Quality, Advanced Home Care, and Chuck Taylor, Senior Consulting Manager for GE Healthcare. They shared experiences and well as strategies for change management as well as dealing with the emotional response to change.

Stay tuned for our next quarterly educational session and annual meeting on November 9, 2011. We will need to discuss nominations for next years THEF Board of Directors at this meeting.

As a reminder, the 2011 THEF Board of Directors are as follows: Pamela Sinclair, FACHE, President; Sam Seifert, President-Elect; Preston Hammock, Treasurer-Secretary; Wendy Hicks, Director; Johnny Veal, Director; and Paul Jeffrey, Immediate Past President.

Hope to see you in November.
