Let’s Connect: SFHEF Spotlight

This is my second year as a Board Member for the South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum (SFHEF), and I currently hold the position of Treasurer. SFHEF is the local chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). ACHE is an international, professional society of more than 30,000 healthcare executives who lead hospitals, healthcare systems and other healthcare organizations. ACHE is known for its prestigious credentialing and educational programs. I have been a member of ACHE for nine years as I find it the single best organization for my continuous education. Over the past two years, I have really enjoyed acquainting myself with the other Board and Chapter members, as I have learned the ins and outs of how the organization is run.
As SFHEF’s Treasurer, I would like to share with you information about the monies collected at various events that our board coordinates. The money collected by SFHEF at events goes towards funding many important initiatives. This year, the Board of Directors has established the funding of two (2) health care management scholarships for 2014: one graduate scholarship ($500) and one undergraduate scholarship ($500). Details are on the organization’s website and the deadline to submit an application is June 15, 2014. We also just hosted our Annual Student Case Competition at Aventura Medical Center where students from Barry University, Florida International University and Florida Atlantic University each fielded teams of students who present a case study published by ACHE. The winning teams were awarded cash prizes for all of their hard work and dedication.
Becoming a member of ACHE is easy - if you have a minimum of a bachelor's degree and a commitment to the profession of healthcare management, then you are invited to join ACHE as a member. There is no better resource to have at your fingertips than the premier organization for healthcare executives.
We hope to see you at our next event in June in coordination with the South Florida Hospital Association Annual Healthcare Summit and, I personally hope to see you become members of ACHE and SFHEF if you are not already!
Until next time, I’m Ramona Lacy ... let’s connect!
