|Message from Your ACHE Regent|
Your WSHEF Chapter Leadership team has been hard at work planning for the upcoming year and we are always looking for programming ideas to bring to you. Chapter involvement is as simple as attending a couple events a year or as fun as volunteering your time with a diverse group of engaged leaders – join us by visiting our website at wshef.ache.org.
Your next opportunity is June 19 where you can join WSHEF/AHLF for a panel discussion: “How Healthcare Organizations Create Equity in the Community.” The moderated panel will focus on Equity and the impact on healthcare delivery and outcomes in our communities. It is energizing to work with so many colleagues who are developing new care models to care for our most vulnerable patients and I hope to see you there.
While there is no Cluster education sessions in WA this year, there are 2 events that could enhance your professional and career growth a short flight away or a scenic drive. There are Cluster opportunities in Alaska August 13-16 and Vancouver, B.C. September 24-27. If travel is not in your future, take advantage of the Board of Governors Exam Fee Waiver by June 30 to save $200 and make 2018 the year you achieve board certification as an ACHE Fellow.
Thank you for being a member of ACHE; I look forward to meeting with you at a future event. Connect with me via Twitter @WAStateRegent.
Serving leaders who care,
Andrea Turner, MHS, FACHE
Regent for Washington
