Message from Your ACHE Regent

I hope you have had a fulfilling summer with time to recharge and connect with family, friends, and colleagues. Recently I had the opportunity to return to New York City for an ACHE Cluster and to visit with over 400 members at a Healthcare Leaders of New York annual chapter event. Seeing former colleagues and meeting many new ones reminded me our ACHE connections are there for us through our entire career and attending programs are a great way to network with other leaders that face the same challenges we all have in our industry. I hope you join me at our Washington State Healthcare Executive Forum annual meeting and breakfast October 11th. Our event coincides with the Washington State Hospital Association Annual Member Meeting to maximize attendance from members throughout the state.

When you receive your ACHE dues renewal this fall you will notice a slight increase. Since 2004, ACHE has held dues steady, yet inflation has increased 36% during the same time-period. At its June meeting, the ACHE Board approved a modest dues increase for 2019 to continue to expand our services while personalizing your experience with us. The dues increase will enable ACHE to continue to offer services based on member needs and a changing healthcare environment. I hope you will agree with me that you receive an incredible value for your dues including top-notch education and networking opportunities, access to the premier FACHE® credential, publications, career resources, and events through your local chapter. ACHE develops your leadership skills while giving you critical knowledge and the tools to succeed.

The 2019 dues increase affects International Associates ($10 increase); Members tiered by tenure ($10 increase for years 1-2; $15 years 3-5; $20 over 5 years) and Fellows ($20 increase). The increase does not affect Students, Faculty, Life or Retired members.
For more information, see http://www.ache.org/pdf/secure/FAQs_Dues_081518.pdf.

September is the perfect time to recruit new Members to ACHE! When your non-member colleague applies in September, ACHE dues are only $160 for the remainder of 2018 and ALL of 2019. Members may apply online at ache.org/Join.

Thank you for being a member of ACHE, and your continued engagement in improving the health of our communities. I look forward to seeing at a future event or connecting with me on Twitter (@WAStateRegent) or Linkedin.

Serving leaders who care,

Andrea Z. Turner, FACHE
Regent for Washington
