ACHE has added enhanced panel discussion templates for chapters to use when conducting future Face-to-Face Education programs. A 30-minute video of well-known ACHE faculty was recorded at their respective sessions at the 2013 Congress on Healthcare Leadership. For a 1.5 credit hour program, you can play the 30-minute video, hold a 30-minute reactive panel discussion and use the final 30 minutes for group discussion. Ten of these videos are now available and can be found in the Manage your Chapter Events in the Chapter Service Center. If you have any questions about the enhanced panel discussion templates, please contact your regional director.

Chapter Education Program Information
Several Chapters Recognized for Exceptional Performance
Several chapters were recognized at the Congress on Healthcare Leadership in Chicago in March for their accomplishments based on four performance standards that are part of ACHE's Chapter Management and Awards Program. The awards program is designed to recognize the delivery of high-quality services to ACHE members at the local level. Chapters must meet or one or more of the four performance standards to win awards based on a tiered recognition system.
Two chapters won the Board of Governors Award, which awards chapters that meet all four of the performance standards. Two chapters won the Award for Chapter Excellence, which awards chapters that meet at least three of the four performance standards. Four chapters won the Award of Chapter Distinction, which awards chapters that meet at least two of the four performance standards. Eighteen chapters won the Award of Chapter Merit for meeting at least one of the four performance standards. Thirteen chapters won the Award for Sustained Performance, which is awarded to all chapters that meet at least one of the four performance standards for three continuous years.
Congratulations to the award-winning chapters. Learn more about the program at the Chapter Management and Awards Program page.
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.
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.
