Message from the President
We are having a beautiful warm summer in Michigan, and I hope you have had time to enjoy some of the splendor and scenic adventures that Michigan has to offer. I have had the opportunity to travel to northern and mid-Michigan to enjoy some of the beautiful sites and have made new friends. The conversations we had were quite enjoyable. Some of them even gave me some tips to improve my golf game! I know we will stay connected.
As I reflect on my summer travels, I also thought about the relationships I have built with so many MCACHE members. From networking, career advice, professional development, access to innovations and new developments, to learning new skills and having fun! These relationships and friendships are treasured.
Over the next several months there are many excellent programs and networking opportunities that are planned and I hope that you have the opportunity to participate. Bring a friend or colleague with you too! The “Calendar” tab on the MCACHE website offers a thorough list of many educational and networking events.
Earlier this summer, two of our members received the Regent’s Awards, which recognizes outstanding achievements and the immense dedication brought to ACHE and MCACHE. Angela DeLaere, the co-chair of the Student Activities Committee, received the Emerging Leader award, and Rick Hillbom, chair of the Membership Committee, received the Senior Leader Executive award. Both have demonstrated strong leadership and unwavering commitment to assisting MCACHE in achieving our goals.
I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming program or networking opportunity. Your MCACHE board is committed to achieving our strategic objectives by creating professional development and networking opportunities that will help you achieve your goals.
Enjoy the rest of the summer!
