ACHE Recognition Program

by | Mar 10, 2023 | Blog, News, Newsletters

The American College of Healthcare Executives is dedicated to advancing healthcare management excellence. We fulfill that vision in many ways, including our educational offerings, credentialing program and collaboration with other healthcare organizations. Through their volunteer activities, ACHE members also play a critical role in strengthening our profession. In appreciation of the extensive volunteer involvement of our members, we have implemented the American College of Healthcare Executives Recognition Program.

The ACHE Recognition Program celebrates members’ commitment to the healthcare management profession. Recognition is bestowed at three levels, based on a range of specific volunteer activities that demonstrate leadership and contributions to furthering professional excellence. All active ACHE members are eligible to be recognized.

The ACHE Recognition Program is based on points accrued through volunteer activities performed in a convocation year (April–March). Points accrue for members beginning with the 2003–2004 convocation year and are cumulative from year to year. A member does not need to achieve a set number of points in a single year, but rather will build over time. In that manner, members have the opportunity to progress through the three award levels.

Awardees will be acknowledged at their local ACHE chapter, with each chapter determining an appropriate time for the annual award ceremonies.


  • Exemplary Service Award = 125 points
  • Distinguished Service Award = 75 points
  • Service Award = 30 points
