Award Criteria

Each Regent is encouraged to provide an award for outstanding healthcare executives in his or her jurisdiction. ACHE will support two Regent's Awards each Convocation year with a certificate and an etched crystal sculpture award. The recipients must be active College affiliates or individuals who have contributed to healthcare management but are not eligible for membership. This would include individuals such as those considered for Honorary Fellowship (i.e., trustees, political figures, etc.).

Regents may construct their awards program in any way they would like. However, some Regents have requested sample criteria they can use for their award. ACHE has developed the criteria listed below for an Early Career and a Senior-Level Healthcare Executive Award.
