Chapter Leaders Conference
I had the distinct pleasure and opportunity to attend our first in-person Chapter Leaders Conference in three years, from September 18 – 20. It was great to be able to talk, network, and learn from other ACHE members and leaders on a variety of topics. There were a lot of good takeaways from the session, including a workshop led by Dr. Leslie Wainwright, PhD. The topic was “Applying Design Thinking to Healthcare’s Most Pressing Challenges”. It was also great to attend the breakout sessions to learn more about what fellow chapters are working on from technology, diversity and inclusion, opportunities for collaboration, and much more.
Annual Chapter Meetings
In November, Midwest Chapter of ACHE (MCACHE) and Great Lakes Chapter of ACHE (GLACHE) will be hosting their annual meetings, respectively. These annual meetings are a special time for the chapter to conduct business, provide education, and recognize exceptional members within our chapters. If you haven’t done so already, please make sure you register to attend your respective chapter meetings.
