President's Message
Vivian Langley

Greetings, Triad Healthcare Executive Forum members! Hard to believe that 2013 is behind us now and we are charging forward into 2014. As I begin my year as THEF President, I want to reflect on last year. THEF, which was led by Sherry Nance, Cone Health, hosted four local events; two of which offered face-to-face education credit hours (1.5). Three events were panel discussions that addressed pressing issues in healthcare. Our November annual dinner featured a guest speaker who discussed the importance of having a sponsor who can promote us in our current roles. We sincerely appreciate all the guest speakers and panelists who supported THEF in 2013.

Looking ahead in 2014, we installed new officers at our annual meeting in November: President-elect, Garry Kauffman (Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center); Julie Idoine, Secretary-Treasurer (Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center); Katy Davis, Director (Alamance Regional Medical Center, Cone Health); and Sherry Nance, Immediate Past President (Cone Health). Carol Vogt (Pfeiffer University) will serve in an advisory role for education programs.

Our first duty as the 2014 THEF Board of Directors is to begin the planning process for chapter events. On December 5, the board held a retreat on the Moses Cone campus. We are excited to share that we are planning to host five events in 2014. Wake Forest is hosting our first Face-to-Face meeting February 27, entitled, Integrating Acute to Post Acute Care Settings: Where Do We Go From Here? For more information or to register, click here. We hope to have other dates available soon to share in our next newsletter.

One of our goals in 2014 is to increase our membership. We encourage you to recruit new members to ACHE. Remember, by joining ACHE, you are automatically enrolled as a THEF member. When talking to nonmembers, share the advantages of being a member of ACHE. I'm referring to advantages such as professional advancement, knowledge and continuing education, networking and relationship building, the furthering of professional ethics and standards, and the furthering of leadership and management excellence. If you have questions about our chapter or would like to get involved in committees, please reach out to a board member.

I look forward to seeing you at a THEF event soon!
