Mission-Driven and Member-Focused
Greetings, ACHE of South Florida members, supporters, and friends.
Even though the Delta variant derailed our ability to move forward with in-person events over the summer, it did not prevent us from continuing to offer virtual events that kept many of us connected and engaged. I am truly grateful for the members of the Board, volunteers, participants, and sponsors that continue to support this year's efforts of being mission-driven and member-focused.
Since the start of the year, our chapter has welcomed nearly 200 new members, 10 new Fellows and 1 Life Fellow. Several hundred members and supporters have participated in more than a dozen events, and we have grown our online presence and engagement to a new level. As I often say, nothing can replace a handshake or a hug, but operating virtually this year has eliminated geographical boundaries and South Florida's traffic challenges, drawing event attendees from throughout Florida, the U.S., and other countries. I am looking forward to connecting with all of you again face-to-face very soon.
Several weeks into the last quarter of the year, we have already held two excellent virtual face-to-face educational programs, with another scheduled for November 17th , which is now at capacity. Stay tuned for more upcoming events!
