Spring Newsletter 2012

A Message From Your 
ACHE of Massachusetts President


Dear ACHE of Massachusetts Members, 
On May 24 we conducted our 2012 Annual Spring Conference entitled Insights into Successful Orgainzations and Their ACO Strategies: National Case Studies. With Massachusetts continuing to lead our nation in Healthcare Reform and Universal coverage, this topic, the keynote speakers and the Panel Discussion provided, once again, very timely and relevant information to the audience.
This was another very successful educational event by the Program Committee as evidenced by the 250 who attended the conference and also by the wonderful feedback received by the participants.

Two NEW events - Breakout Sessions - were also held immediately following the conference. One session was on Career Advancement - Tips, Trends and Success Stories; the second topic was a FACHE Advancement information session.

We were once again honored to have awarded David M. Kinzer Scholarships to three of our student board representatives. Emily Seidmon, Suffolk University, Anthony Marchi, UMASS Lowell and John Bry, Boston University were this year's recipients. The Scholarship Awards symbolize the enduring legacy of David Kinzer and his leadership in healthcare in Massachusetts.

Submit your Fellow Application now and save $200 on the Board of Governors Exam. Earning the distinction of board certification as a Fellow of ACHE demonstrates your competence, dedication and commitment to lifelong learning as a Healthcare Executive.

ACHE of Massachusetts earned a 2012 Chapter Management Award. The Award of Chapter Management was achieved as a result of our membership growth exceeding our membership growth target of 11.2%. Congratulations to our Membership and Advancement Committee and the Early Careerist Network.

Change is accelerating in the healthcare industry, our profession and in our own organizations. ACHE of Massachusetts will continue to provide its members with the latest educational programs and events so we can all stay ahead of the curve with information to assist you in leading and managing your organizations.


William P. Fleming, FACHE
