The annual Congress of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) is the largest gathering of its kind in the nation, bringing together healthcare executives from across the country to share information and insight about the challenges facing our healthcare delivery system.
CAHME is proud to be an important part of this annual gathering. Our history—marking 50 years in 2018—is closely linked with ACHE, which was one of the four organizations that founded CAHME (along with the Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA) the American Public Health Association, and the American Hospital Association). Many of today’s healthcare leaders in ACHE are graduates of CAHME-accredited programs.
We have a full agenda for this year’s Congress, including:
- Our annual CAHME Awards luncheon, at which we will celebrate CAHME Award winners and our corporate Award sponsors;
- The CAHME Boot Camp, which will focus on new accreditation standards and our focus on competency-based education;
- Attendance at the AUPHA Board meeting; and
- A presentation to the Graduate Programs and Practitioners Workshop.
I am always energized and inspired by attending the ACHE Congress. It is remarkable to be among some of the best and brightest leaders in healthcare who are dedicating their professional lives toward improving the health of communities across America. And I take a large measure of pride in seeing how many of these leaders have honed their skills at CAHME-accredited programs.
I hope to see you there.
