Let's Connect: SFHEF Spotlight

President’s Message

A Look Ahead for 2019
Our theme for this year is “Engagement, Commitment and Connect.”
The 2019 Board of Directors is committed to helping all members get the most out of their memberships and to convince those who are not members to join and become part of the “Healthcare Professionals Movement” in South Florida.
If you are a Senior Healthcare Leadership individual, we want to engage you in two ways in 2019.
First, we encourage you to attend our Education and Networking Events this year to provide your input, wisdom and best practices into the topics presented.
Second, we ask you to provide leadership by example to our Mid-Level, Early careerist and Student Members.
You are the cornerstone of our ACHE team!!!
If you are a Mid-Level or Early Careerist, our events allow you to not only network with your peers, but to meet other members who can provide you with insights into new and inventive products and services to help you meet your professional goals.
And if you are a Student, SFHEF is the place to learn about the real world of healthcare and meet your future employer.

Why will this year be different?
In 2019, 50% of all education events will be for members only. So if you are in the audience and are not a member, I suggest that you speak to one of our board members about joining or go to
And in addition to our standard committees which are listed next to the board member’s names in the program, we are going to have a Task Force charged withPhysician Executive Leadership Developmentbased on new ACHE initiatives.
Healthcare is experiencing a profound transformation. More and more physicians are entering the C-suite as change leaders and strategic decision makers, roles that are vital for physicians to play. Physicians are inherent leaders, but in order to be most effective, physicians need skills that go beyond their clinical expertise.
This will be a terrific opportunity for Physicians to become an integral part of ACHE and SFHEF and we encourage them to join ACHE in 2019.
Thank you all for your continued and future “Engagement, Commitment and Connection” with SFHEF and ACHE and I look forward to serving you and your organization in 2019.
