Message from the President

Poindexter_2014-11-12

Welcome! Our chapter board along with your Maryland Regent and ACHE District Two Regional Representative recently met for a much needed strategic planning offsite. Using the Malcolm Baldrige Performance Excellence Framework, we focused our attention on the continuous improvement of board and chapter operations. Discussion highlights included:

  • Relationship building
  • Membership
  • Volunteers
  • Key stakeholder engagement
  • Program alignment
  • MAHCE leadership development and accountability
  • Validation of core competencies

As our planning efforts transition to specific objectives and actions, we’ll certainly need your continued support to realize our chapter performance goals.

Our objective is clear – to advance our members and healthcare management excellence by meeting the needs of our membership for lifelong learning, mentoring, and effective relationship building so critical to the success of healthcare leaders today and tomorrow. I want to thank our Board, committee volunteers, and panel members/presenters for their contributions and unwavering support to make MACHE a viable, vibrant ACHE chapter.

We couldn’t offer the quality educational programs we do today without our MAHCE corporate sponsors and I personally want to thank them for their financial generosity and commitment, both of which are most appreciated, graciously accepted and absolutely essential for delivering quality, affordable programs.

I am very much looking forward to the remainder of 2016 and hope to see you at our July 21st panel discussion on the Opiate Epidemic at the Sheraton Columbia Town Center Hotel. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments regarding our chapter activities at my email address of Bernie.Poindexter@gmail.com. Thank you!

Warmest Regards,

Bernie
