DEVELOPMENT AND CAREER
ACHE Tuition Waiver Assistance Program

 

To reduce the barriers to ACHE educational programming for ACHE members experiencing economic hardship, ACHE has established the Tuition Waiver Assistance Program.

ACHE makes available a limited number of tuition waivers to ACHE Members and Fellows whose organizations lack the resources to fund their tuition for education programs. Members and Fellows in career transition are also encouraged to apply. Tuition waivers are based on financial need and are available for the following ACHE education programs:

  • Congress on Healthcare Leadership
  • Cluster Seminars
  • Self-Study Programs
  • Online Education Programs
  • Online Tutorial (Board of Governors Exam preparation)
  • ACHE Board of Governors Exam Review Course

All requests are due no less than eight weeks before the program date, except for ACHE self-study courses; see quarterly application deadlines on the FAQ page of the tuition waiver application. Incomplete applications and applications received after the deadline will not be considered. Recipients will be notified of the waiver review panel's decision not less than six weeks before the program date. For ACHE self-study courses, applicants will be notified three weeks after the quarterly application deadline.

If you have questions about the program, please contact Teri Somrak, associate director, Division of Professional Development, at (312) 424-9354 or tsomrak@ache.org. For more information, visit ache.org/TuitionWaiver.

Mix and Mingles

Get to know your colleagues!  Watch for Upcoming Meet-n-Mingle Events in your Neighborhood
 
•        Have you wondered if there are ways you can meet more of your local healthcare colleagues – that  mysterious thing called “networking”?
•        Are you looking to find a next role?  You looking for the right candidate?
•        Is there a problem you are tackling at work and wonder if others are working on a similar issue?  Or are you just looking for others who will understand what the heck you are talking about?
•        Know where all the local healthcare execs hang out after work?
 
The highly popular Meet-N-Mingle events will be returning to different venues across our state.  Our first two will be scheduled for September/October in Tacoma and Seattle (UW area).  As we get the dates and locations finalized, an invitation will be sent out.
 
Meet-n-Mingles are informal gatherings of area WSHEF members at a local restaurant or pub.  There is typically a small fee to cover appetizers.  While this is not a formal education program, someone will be there to share upcoming WSHEF and ACHE events and activities. 
 
So, rather than heading out into the usual rush-hour, head over to a local Meet-n-Mingle for a nosh and a drink and get to know your fellow executives.  We want to put A U in COLLEGE!  (hint:  colleAgUe)
 
By the way, we are always looking for local hosts around the state and we will help you do all the planning.  If you have an interest in holding a future Meet-N-Mingle in your area let the membership committee know at smsaxe@comcast.net.
 
Thanks, and get networking, people!
