Sponsorship Opportunities with Great Lakes Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives

What is the Great Lakes Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives?

The Great Lakes Chapter, American College of Healthcare Executives, or GLACHE, is the professional organization serving affiliates and healthcare professionals, working in a variety of settings, including hospitals, health plans, medical practices, consulting firms, pharmaceutical companies, nursing homes, universities, and other areas of the healthcare industry, throughout central, western, and northern Michigan, to include those in the Upper Peninsula region.

Our chapter strives to provide and enhance opportunities for education, networking and information exchange that will improve the ability of our members to serve the communities and our collective healthcare organizations, while improving quality of and access to care throughout the Great Lakes Region. GLACHE offers educational and professional development opportunities on key issues affecting healthcare management.  For the majority of our membership GLACHE is the first place to go for up-to-date industry information and continuing education credits needed to obtain certification status in the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). 

Why Become a GLACHE Sponsor

GLACHE would like to offer your organization an opportunity to gain exposure to the top healthcare organizations and management teams in our region by sponsoring our chapter and its many activities. GLACHE has established a sponsorship program through which organizations and individuals have an opportunity to become involved in the chapter's events and activities, gaining exposure to our members and their varied healthcare organizations through an annual modest financial contribution.

GLACHE, and its’ members, have always relied upon the support of various industry vendors, like yourself, to underwrite our numerous education and networking programs and events.  For this coming year we have developed a comprehensive corporate sponsorship program to provide maximum benefit and consistent recognition throughout the year.  Sponsorship funds are vital to insuring that we can continue to provide quality programming, at affordable rates, to help meet the demands for quality, high value care, fostered and overseen by our members, in the communities they serve throughout Michigan.
