They enjoy anything that involves spending time with family, from being on the river, camping, smoking meats, or riding dirt bikes.

Message from Your ACHE Regent


Every year summer seems to fly by even faster and then we feel the holiday season is upon us. With kids heading back to school or off to college and football season kickoff right around the corner, now is the time to refocus on your professional advancement and fulfillment goals.

We hope to see you at our WSHEF Annual Breakfast on October 9 at a new location – the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington Southport in Renton. We have a great panel assembled for you where we will be discussing Service Line development and it is a great opportunity to network with colleagues from around the state (co-hosted with the WSHA Annual Meeting). Register at www.wsha.org.

I also want to encourage you to participate in our election process – you will receive a WSHEF/ACHE ballot via email to elect WSHEF Board Members as well as our new ACHE Regent who will take office at Congress in 2020. We also have a general election and I would encourage you to be an active participant in your city and county political process. King County had only a 35% voter participation rate for the August primary and we live in a vote by mail state!

I hope to see you at a future event and feel free to reach out to me at any time for information on WSHEF/ACHE or to assist you with your personal career goals.

Serving leaders who care,

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

WSHEF Advancement Committee Needs You!

WSHEF Advancement Committee – Volunteer Opportunities

 


WSHEF members are often looking for opportunities to assist with an event or activity. The Advancement Committee has some great opportunities for WSHEF members looking for a chance to become more involved and give back to our profession. Please consider one of the following opportunities:
 
Fellows Only Event – These events are tailored to members that have attained the Fellow certification in the American College of Healthcare Executives. Help or lead the selection of a sponsor, venue, speaker and other logistics to host another outstanding opportunity for ACHE Fellows to network and gain additional healthcare knowledge. In the past, proceeds of these events have gone to the Foundation for Healthcare Excellence.
 
Advancement Information Sessions – Are you a recent Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives? Are you interested in getting the next batch of members motivated to work toward their own Fellow credential to demonstrate excellence in healthcare management? Then consider volunteering to lead or assist with the development of Advancement Information Sessions every three to six months. Ideally these session or webinars will provide 1.5 hours of information on the steps for a member to take to move to the next level as a certified healthcare executive with the ACHE Fellow designation.
 
Board of Governors (BOG) Exam Study Group – Getting ready for the BOG exam to apply toward your Fellow credential with ACHE? Consider a study group to help motivate and guide your preparation. Study groups will follow the format of the ACHE preparation guides and have periodic online meetings as determined by the group. The groups share the initial preparation of the discussion using the ACHE recommended materials. As an added bonus, each member that successfully passes the BOG exam within a year of the end of the Study Group can submit the receipts for the ACHE study preparation books and receive a $240 refund.
 
Board of Governors Exam Study Group Facilitator – One member of the study group who is interested in running the study group can also apply to be a study group facilitator. If selected, the member will have the ACHE exam preparation webinar series and the preparation books covered by the chapter. The facilitator will help arrange the study group meetings and assignments. The group normally rotates taking lead on each topic to be covered at study group meeting. Virtual meetings will be encouraged to allow for remote BOG exam candidates to be able to participate.

ACHE Tuition Waiver Assistance Program

To reduce the barriers to ACHE educational programming for ACHE members experiencing economic hardship, ACHE has established the Tuition Waiver Assistance Program.

ACHE makes available a limited number of tuition waivers to ACHE Members and Fellows whose organizations lack the resources to fund their tuition for education programs. Members and Fellows in career transition are also encouraged to apply. Tuition waivers are based on financial need and are available for the following ACHE education programs:

  • Congress on Healthcare Leadership
  • Cluster Seminars
  • Self-Study Programs
  • Online Education Programs
  • Online Tutorial (Board of Governors Exam preparation)
  • ACHE Board of Governors Exam Review Course

All requests are due no less than eight weeks before the program date, except for ACHE self-study courses; see quarterly application deadlines on the FAQ page of the tuition waiver application. Incomplete applications and applications received after the deadline will not be considered. Recipients will be notified of the waiver review panel's decision not less than six weeks before the program date. For ACHE self-study courses, applicants will be notified three weeks after the quarterly application deadline.

If you have questions about the program, visit ache.org/TuitionWaiver.

Check out ACHE's New Redesigned Website!

ACHE launched a redesigned ache.org in December 2018. This new "digital front door" is an important milestone in delivering on our goal to educate, engage and inspire leaders to improve health.

Designed with our members and users in mind, the new site:

  • Provides timely and relevant content, resources and information

  • Ensures ease-of-use and a modern interface

  • Promotes growth and engagement

  • Tells the story of ACHE and its members

The new website is the first phase of a digital strategy that will continue to evolve, ultimately providing healthcare leaders, especially members, with value-added content, a personalized experience and a sense of community. While the site provides a fresh, new look and experience, the regular activities that members conduct on the site, such as paying membership dues, registering for a seminar or purchasing a book, will function as usual.

The Department of Health Policy & Administration will help the student find an internship that meets your needs, or the student may arrange their own internship.  

Graduates of the program work in a wide range of career fields including hospital management, public health, managed care, group practice management, and financial management. Since 2013, 90% of WSU MHPA graduates secured employment within 3 months of graduation!

To attract and accommodate our working professional students, our classes are offered from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., four days a week.

Volunteer Opportunities

Looking for ways to connect with more healthcare leaders? Volunteer for a WSHEF committee!

As a volunteer organization committed to being the premier professional society connecting healthcare leaders in Washington State, WSHEF depends on volunteers to run its programs and provide service to its members. Opportunities abound for individuals looking to connect with other healthcare professionals, learn more about WSHEF programs and services or give back to the healthcare professional community. WSHEF has volunteer opportunities for the following committees:  

If you are passionate about continuing education and professional development, consider volunteering for WSHEF’s Programs Committee. Programs Committee participation can include annual committee membership, where you participate in setting the vision and long-term strategies for WSHEF sponsored events. Volunteering can also be event specific, allowing you to volunteer for the amount of time you are able to commit. Event specific volunteering is a great way to meet your local colleagues and support your local ACHE chapter. Time commitment for events is typically 3 months and totals less than 10 hours, serving in ways such as:

•  Event Planning (Location, Speaker, Topic, etc…)
•  Event Materials & Promotion
•  Day of Event Support (Check-in/Greeters, Setup, etc…)

If you’re interested in volunteering with the Programs Committee, please reach out to Programs Committee Co-Chairs at wshef.membership@achemail.net.

Beyond joining a committee, there are other ways to get involved. Write an article for the newsletter, attend an educational session and bring a colleague, provide a venue for an event or serve as a mentor for an MHA student. Just email one of the contacts above to get connected.  

 

Host a Meet N Mingle in Your Area

Get to know your colleagues!  Watch for Upcoming Meet-n-Mingle Events in your Neighborhood

 
•        Have you wondered if there are ways you can meet more of your local healthcare colleagues – that  mysterious thing called “networking”?
•        Are you looking to find a next role?  You looking for the right candidate?
•        Is there a problem you are tackling at work and wonder if others are working on a similar issue?  Or are you just looking for others who will understand what the heck you are talking about?
•        Know where all the local healthcare execs hang out after work?
 
The highly popular Meet-N-Mingle events are happening at different venues across our state. As future dates and locations are finalized, an invitation will be sent out.
 
Meet-n-Mingles are informal gatherings of area WSHEF members at a local restaurant or pub. There is typically a small fee to cover appetizers. While this is not a formal education program, someone will be there to share upcoming WSHEF and ACHE events and activities. 
 
So, rather than heading out into the usual rush-hour, head over to a local Meet-n-Mingle for a nosh and a drink and get to know your fellow executives. We want to put A U in COLLEGE! (hint: colleAgUe)
 
By the way, we are always looking for local hosts around the state and we will help you do all the planning. If you have an interest in holding a future Meet-N-Mingle in your area let the membership committee know at wshef.membership@achemail.net.

 
Thanks, and get networking people!
