The May webinar, which is hosted by ACHE’s Joe Dietrich, CPA, FACHE, CAE, vice president/CFO, and Jennifer L. Connelly, CAE, regional director, will give you the tools you need to create a budget that will help you reach your chapter’s goals. Our June webinar on local program councils will provide an in-depth look at their purpose and how they can add value to your chapter’s offerings.

Chapter Leadership Collaborative:
Participants in the Chapter Leadership Collaborative will create a manual that will guide the chapter process for the selection, orientation and recognition of chapter leaders.
Key elements of the program include:
What is the Program?
The Collaborative will support a cohort of chapter leaders who have been selected by their board to assist the chapter in developing guidelines to develop, support and recognize current and future leaders. The 2014 program starts in January and ends in September. ACHE will provide resources and learning opportunities to assist in developing a manual customized to your chapter’s needs. They include templates for the key elements mentioned above and a series of half-hour webinars. Webinars will be recorded and sent to all participants.
Coordinators will be given monthly leadership development assignments that correspond with key elements of the program, i.e. creating your chapter’s organizational chart. Coordinators will work in conjunction with their board to develop the manual. Chapters who wish to participate must sign the commitment form with authorization by the chapter board. Successful completion of the program relies on a complete board manual that contains these key elements: Organizational chart, position description, orientation and training process, and a recognition program.
For more information, contact Terra L. Levin, FACHE, CAE, regional director, Regional Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (312) 424-9329.
