|Message from Your ACHE Regent|
It is graduation season and new MHA graduates across the country are joining the ranks of our profession. Do you remember what first brought you into medicine? Are you now where you thought you would be after graduation? I challenge each of us to make new connections with students, new graduates, new members of our organizations and other healthcare leaders. Who have you connected with this spring?
Another cornerstone of our success is healthcare advocacy at the local, state, and national levels. WSHA provided our chapter with an outstanding legislative update and reminded each of us that we can be a vital voice by getting to know our council members, legislators, and becoming a sought after resource to educate about healthcare issues.
We have two meet and mingle sessions coming up in June, as well as opportunities to earn ACHE credit towards advancement right here in Seattle. Our WSHEF board and I want to hear what we can do to bring the most relevant programming in a convenient location for you. If you are interested in serving ACHE at the state or national level, I am happy to share my experience with you. Nominations are due this summer (July 15 – Governor; August 23 – Regent) so don’t delay.
I hope you have a relaxing and restorative summer.
Serving leaders who care,
Andrea Z. Turner, FACHE
Regent for Washington
Director, Overlake Medical Center & Clinics
