Message from Your ACHE Regent - Summer 2014


The end of summer is here and fall is upon us. This brings with it a renewed focus on work and professional activities.  However, over the past few months, the North Carolina Chapters of ACHE have been busily working on plans for this year.  

I am proud of the work that has been completed by the four chapters this summer. Congratulations to the Triad Chapter for submitting its position statement on diversity. All other chapters are currently working on their statements. This year ACHE is focused on diversity and inclusion in all aspects. ACHE embraces diversity within the healthcare management field and recognizes the priority as both an ethical and business imperative.  

The Greater Charlotte Chapter conducted a strategic planning retreat. I attended this session and I was very impressed with the enthusiasm and focus of the Chapter leaders. Triangle and Sandhills chapters have worked on networking and educational events to for the upcoming months.  

I have selected four members to assist me as my Regents Advisory Committee. Brent Shive, Premier; Jay Briley, FACHE, Vidant; Chuck Mantooth, Appalachian Health System and Derrick Billups, FACHE, Coastal Carolinas Health Alliance.  They will assist me with meetings with schools, awards nominations and other Regent associated activities across the state. I look forward to working with each of them.  Please congratulate and thank them for agreeing to participate in these activities.

As a final point, I would like to encourage each member to identify one nonmember who would benefit from being a part of this organization. Invite them to a meeting, networking event or educational offering. Tell them about the value ACHE brings to your professional career and encourage them to join. This is our professional credential as healthcare leaders. We need other leaders in the healthcare field to recognize and embrace it as such.

Joann Anderson, FACHE
Regent for North Carolina
