Testimonials


  • "ACHE has provided access to quality educational programs on a wide variety of topics and countless networking opportunities. Serving as a chapter president also provided a platform to further enhance my leadership skills."

  • "ACHE has helped me tremendously. In 2006, I attended ACHE’s Leaders Conference. I also participated in ACHE’s Executive Program in 2008. Those two programs alone exposed me to a number of leadership tools that I continue to use today. Through chapter involvement, my career has also benefitted from the relationships I have formed with many local ACHE leaders."

  • "ACHE is an extremely valuable organization both for education and for networking purposes. I read Healthcare Executive magazine from cover to cover and recently attended one of the best continuing education courses ever for ACHE Fellows only titled "Possibilities, Probabilities, and Creative Solutions: Breakthrough Thinking for Complex Environments."
