Resolution to Change Chapter Name

As many of you know, our chapter name, Triad Healthcare Executive Forum (THEF), is also shared by a neighboring ACHE chapter in the Triangle area, also called THEF (Triangle Healthcare Executive's Forum).  As you can imagine, this gets confusing for our members who get invitations to attend events from both chapters and for potential sponsors of our events.  For several months, your board has been discussing changing our name to eliminate the confusion with our fellow chapter in the Triangle and to align our name more closely with the ACHE.  In order to change our name, we look to our bylaws and the ACHE, who provides guidelines to manage our chapter.  Guidelines state that the board has to make a resolution for the change and our membership must vote on the resolution.  At this time, the THEF Board is presenting to you a resolution to change the name of our chapter to ACHE of the Triad.  At our annual meeting in November, we will present the resolution again and those members in attendance will vote on the name change.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Vivian Langley at (336) 538-7087 or
