American College of Healthcare Executives - Wisconsin Chapter - Fall 2017 (Plain Text Version)
In this issue:
I am thrilled to have met so many of you at our third Annual Conference, which was held Sept. 18-20 at the beautiful Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake. Attendees of the conference were able to earn 12 Face to Face credits and heard from a variety of expert panelists and speakers who shared their insights and best practices related to topics ranging from disruptive technology to building a talented work force. We also heard from our colleagues at the Wisconsin Hospital Association and honored three very deserving awardees of Regent awards. Be sure to check out the photos from the event on our website! I was also proud to share the many successes of our Chapter over the past year, and to thank the countless volunteers who gave of their time and talents in support of Chapter initiatives.
