President's Message
Samuel B. Seifert, MHA

Greetings Triad Healthcare Executive Forum!  It's hard to believe but calendar year 2012 is at its halfway point.  Thus far, your THEF chapter has been active organizing and holding two educational programs.  Our first event, held on March 29th, was a qualified ACHE face-to-face education program on "Ensuring Your Community's Emergency Preparedness."  We had 34 people in attendance who interacted with our assembled panel of experts.  Important take-aways from this session include: 1) community networks/partnerships are important; 2) practice/planning is critical; 3) communication is vital; 4) the Triad community has lots of knowledgable people working behind the scenes daily to ensure our preparedness in the event of an emergency.  Most recently, on June 13th, THEF welcomed back Ms. Joan Evans, Chief Learning Officer and VP of People Development at Cone Health.  Ms. Evans provided valuable, research-based insight and advice to our 37 attendees on "Planning Your Career and Your Life: They Can Co-exist."  Many thanks to Ms. Evans for her spirited and informative presentation to our membership. 

Please be on the lookout for information that will be forthcoming on our third educational event of the year, planned for a September timeframe.  THEF is partnering with Pfeiffer University to host a panel discussion  on "Ethical Challenges in Healthcare Leadership."  We are planning this event to qualify for 1.5 hours of face-to-face education credit (previously category 1).  More to come, so stay tuned. 

Lastly, THEF is continuing its tradition of offering scholarship money to professionals of healthcare organizations in the Triad who are pursuing a graduate level degree for a career in healthcare management/adminstration.  Please contact THEF board member Wendy Hicks at for more information. 

As always, thank you for continued interest and involvement in THEF.  I look forward to seeing you at future events.
