Hello ACHE of South Florida members, supporters, and friends.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about the accomplishments of our members and our chapter throughout the second quarter of this year. Despite continuing to operate in a mostly virtual business environment, we strived to provide events and activities that kept us all connected. Through educational programming, networking, new member orientation, the annual Healthcare Leader Development Student Case Competition, and the chapter’s first Fellow Advancement & BOG Exam Informational Session, we’ve seen participation collectively reach several hundred over the last three months. We are grateful for your support and involvement. A lot of time, dedication, and heart goes into organizing events, and it makes volunteering for this organization fulfilling when engagement is high.
I extend a warm welcome to all of you that have recently joined ACHE and our chapter or renewed your membership. Please reach out, introduce yourself, attend events, volunteer on a committee, and offer suggestions and feedback. Help us as we continue on a mission-driven and member-focused course.
With the deepest gratitude and respect, I wish to acknowledge everyone that continues to help us through the pandemic, including healthcare workers, first responders, educators, and so many others. Thank you to our sponsors and board members who volunteer their time to fulfill their obligations to our members.
Kenneth C. Wong, FACHE
