Message from the President

On behalf of the Board of Directors, it is my honor to welcome you to the ACHE Western Florida Chapter (WFC).

For almost 20 years, our Chapter has supported the Western Florida healthcare leadership community including healthcare students, early careerists, consultants, nurses, physicians, healthcare educators, and senior executives by meeting individuals where they are in their professional journey. We recognize that our Chapter’s diversity, not only of education or clinical expertise, but also of all other facets, brings us closer together. Our unity is our strength.

In an era where healthcare co-exists with the virus that causes COVID-19, our Chapter’s leadership remains committed to excellence by providing continuing education, networking opportunities, and mentorship. Whether you aim to enhance your skillset, meet other professionals, consider career options, or pursue Fellow status by obtaining the FACHE credential, our Chapter provides the resources for your success.

We invite you to be an active participant in your membership with our Chapter by attending events regularly, inquiring about volunteer opportunities, and laying the groundwork to pursue future Board openings.

Thank you for joining us. I look forward to meeting you in the near future!
