Check Out ACHE’s Enhanced Executive Coaching Directory

ACHE’s Career Resource Center is pleased to bring you an enhanced version of the Executive Coaching Directory. Executive coaches offer personalized support to individuals pursuing professional growth. While ACHE is not endorsing the firms or individuals listed, we hope that our directory accelerates your research process as you assess the qualifications, practice methods and fees of an array of executive coaches. Not only does this upgrade provide a better experience for members seeking executive coaches, the coaches promoting their services benefit as well. 

The new platform features include:

  • Enhanced search capabilities for members seeking an executive coach. You can now search coach profiles based on location, area of expertise and more!

  • Improved profiles, including the listed coaches’ website, social media outlets and a professional headshot.

  • Advanced technology that provides members and coaches with a more user-friendly experience.

Check out the Executive Coaches Directory today! If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us at coach@ache.org.

Board of Governors Exam Fee Waiver Campaign: March 1–June 30

The Board of Governors Exam fee waiver promotion for ACHE Members to save $200 when they submit their Fellow application will take place between March 1 and June 30, 2018.

Eligible members must submit their completed Fellow application, $250 application fee and meet all requirements—including the three years of ACHE membership tenure and five years of executive-level healthcare management experience—by June 30 in order to receive approval to take the Board of Governors Exam. Pending application approval, ACHE will waive the $200 Board of Governors Exam fee.


ACHE’s Leader-to-Leader Program

When you share the value of ACHE membership with your colleagues through encouraging them to join or advance to Fellow status, you can earn points to obtain rewards such as a gift certificate toward an ACHE education program, a polo shirt, a backpack tote, a water bottle and an umbrella. If you sponsor three or more Members who successfully achieve Fellow status, you can even be entered into a raffle for a free registration to ACHE’s Congress on Healthcare Leadership.

Each time a person joins ACHE or advances to Fellow status and lists your name as a sponsor on the application, you earn a point. The more points you earn, the more rewards you can receive. Points expire on Dec. 31 of the year following when they were earned (e.g., a point earned on Jan. 1, 2018, will expire on Dec. 31, 2019). You can check your available points and discount program coupon codes in the My ACHE area of ache.org. To ensure colleagues reference you, referral cards are available that you can pass out so you receive the credit you deserve.

When you help grow ACHE, you make a strong statement about your professionalism and leadership in the healthcare field and also strengthen the organization.

For more information on the program, go to ache.org/L2L.

ACHE Member Communities Enhance Membership Experience

The Fund looks forward to more opportunities for outreach in 2018.
