Message from Your HCAT President
Samantha Kern, President

‘Act as if what you do makes a difference.  It does.’ –William James

As we roll straight into spring (what happened to Q1???), I’d like to take a moment to thank you for being a member of HCAT and ACHE. It is our mission to promote the healthcare management profession through service, education and networking. Each one of us supports that mission by sharing our diverse backgrounds and knowledge. Thank you to Dolores Clement, DrPH, FACHE who has served as our Regent for the past three years, ensuring the success of our chapter and guiding the Board. Thank you to Eric Young, FACHE for serving as president during 2016. Thank you to the Board of Directors and all of our volunteers who have supported and stewarded our chapter. 

So here’s my call to action- make a difference. If you don’t attend meetings, attend one and tell us what you would like to see in the future. Bring a colleague or friend to an event. Mentor a young leader or seek out a member to learn from. Get involved by volunteering for an event or joining a committee. I’d like for each of our members to find value in HCAT. Please reach out to us at hcat@achemail.net for volunteer opportunities or suggestions- I’d love to hear from you!
