Access to Career Resources Continues Following 2019 Congress  
Thank you to the nearly 100 volunteers who assisted hundreds of visitors to the Career Center at this year’s Congress on Healthcare Leadership. With their help, we provided approximately 500 career advising and resume review sessions.
If you missed the 2019 Congress, you can still access leadership assessments and other career management tools year-round by visiting ache.org/CareerResources. The resources available can help you advance your career, build your brand, develop your network and seek new opportunities. Whether navigating professional transitions or creating a long-term plan, everything you need to manage and develop every step of your career is a click away.
Save $200 on the BOG Exam Fee 
When you submit your advancement application by June 30, the $200 Board of Governors Exam fee will be waived.
Earning the FACHE® is the gold standard for board certification in healthcare management, so obtaining this coveted credential signifies hard work, dedication and commitment. We want to thank you for your efforts, which is why when you submit your completed application by June 30, along with the $250 application fee and all supporting documents, the $200 Board of Governors Exam fee will be waived.
If you are committed to standing out as a leader among leaders in healthcare management, learn about the requirements to sit for the BOG Exam and the complimentary resources available to help you prepare for it here.
Your Success Benefits Everyone
When you share the value of your ACHE membership with colleagues, you not only help advance the profession but can earn rewards as well.
Each time you encourage someone to join ACHE or help them earn their FACHE® you receive a reward point through the Leader-to-Leader Program. The more reward points you collect, the more rewards you can receive. When you help grow ACHE, you not only make a strong statement about your professionalism and leadership in the healthcare field, but you strengthen the organization. For more information visit ache.org/L2L.
Choice: ACHE's Tailored Professional Development Series
Choice offers the ability to tailor ACHE’s high quality, professional development programs, seminars and assessments specifically to your organization. This new customizable professional development series (formerly known as "On-Location") is designed to meet the educational needs and close the competency gaps within your group. Additionally, leading every ACHE program is a respected expert speaker, facilitator or author with a real-world perspective.
Choice programming means that clients receive the professional development needed, where it is convenient and with a cadence that works best for their organizations. During the planning phase, clients have options for who, what, where, when and how their programs are tailored. These programs, categorized in a meaningful way, focus on topics that affect executives and leaders in the healthcare industry today. Some of these topics include:
• Advancing Population Health
• Career Resource Management
• Care Delivery Management
• Employee Experience and Relationship Management
• Executive Leadership Coaching
• Fiscal Leadership and Management
• Governance
• Operational Advancement
• Physician Executive Partnerships
• Patient Experience and Consumerism
• Safety and Quality
• Technology and Information Analytics
As ACHE continues to advance both leaders and the healthcare management field toward excellence, we also strive to meet today’s challenges with bold new solutions. Choice is an example of that. For questions regarding Choice programming, the topics listed above or how we can help bring tailored professional development to your organization, please contact Catie Russo, program specialist, at crusso@ache.org or (312) 424-9362. Visit ache.org/Choice for more information.
