Get Involved!
WSHEF needs your help and expertise!

We want you to get the most out of being a member of our organization – how can you get involved?

Attend educational sessions and bring a colleague; promote ACHE and WSHEF membership in your organization

Provide a venue for an event

Volunteer and join a committee; suggest programming ideas.

Together we can develop relationships with other healthcare professionals, enhance our educational offerings, and address critical healthcare issues on local, state, and national levels.

The WSHEF Board has worked very hard to provide cutting edge educational sessions for all interested healthcare professionals in the region. Over the past two years there has been a notable increase in total participation. This is due in great part to the willingness of WSHEF members to donate their time and expertise. We have high expectations that this participation will continue to grow. However, without your help, we won't be able to achieve those goals. Each of you has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in your respective healthcare field. Please consider joining us in providing a venue to promote interaction and communication among healthcare professionals; foster professional development and educational forums; and address critical healthcare issues on local, state, and national levels.

WSHEF Officers and  Committee Chairs:

On April 1, 2014 our new Board, Officers, Committee Chairs and Committee members will begin their term of office. If you are interested in serving on a committee, please check our WSHEF website later this month for the names of our new committee contacts. WSHEF Website
