|Message from Your ACHE Regent - Fall 2015|
Message from Your ACHE Regent
Fall is here, schools are back in session and ACHE chapters in North Carolina are in full swing. It's the perfect time of year to become involved in your local chapter. If you are not engaged in the chapter activities, leadership or participation, I encourage you to connect with your chapter to volunteer your talents. The chapter is only as good as the people who participate. I would like to congratulate the leadership of all four North Carolina chapters for their strategic plan development, educational plans and planned networking opportunities for this year. It is going to be a great year!
I would also like to encourage those of you who are not Fellows to take this opportunity to move to that next level. FACHE is THE credential for healthcare leaders. It validates our competency in leadership. Just as other professions in healthcare have their national certification, we should strive for that level in ours. When I interviewed for my current position, it required FACHE credentials. I am grateful that ACHE has allowed me to progress in higher levels of leadership throughout my career. The Fellow credential could do that for you as well.
I look forward to seeing you at upcoming chapter activities.
Joann Anderson, FACHE
Regent for North Carolina
