Florida Chapter of American College of Health Care Administrators

Hello Florida Administrators and emerging professionals, please join me in wishing our past President (ExOffcio) Allen Yearick farewell and good luck on his new career venture. We appreciate his guidance, diligence and commitment to the FL Chapter ACHCA which has thrived under his leadership. A testament to his leadership is when FL Chapter ACHCA hosted 2018 ACHCA national convocation in Orlando, FL and I dare toot our horn, it was praised as the largest attended and best convocation in 5 years!! And "still we rise!" I am honored to step into his shoes as president of the FL Chapter ACHCA.

We approach 2019, with renewed vigor, uplifted, enthusiastic and optimistic. This is all buoyed by our fantastic board of officers, several of them brand new members of FL Chapter ACHCA. Please check out the new faces and their roles within FL chapter ACHCA on our website.

We are pushing forward with our new membership drive with a focus on cultivating a value based membership in the FL chapter. We eagerly anticipate, networking gatherings and mini conferences offering CEU's and seminars in current agendas, regulations and programs. In addition we are actively participating in the ACHCA mentoring program for our emerging professionals. And more to come.

If you or someone you know is curious about membership or ACHCA, please do not hesitate to contact me. See you at one of our meet and greets and of course don't forget;

"COUNTDOWN TO CONVOCATION!" Planning ahead, mark your calendar next year for March 17-20, 2019 when our National ACHCA Convocation will be held in Louisville, KY.

Member Benefits

Make Your Mark
We need to make an effort as a healthcare professional to add to the growth and development of this field. The ACHCA Florida Chapter can help you make meaningful contributions to our profession. We want our members to leave the healthcare profession (and our association) better than when we entered it.

We Are All Connected
ACHCA provides a Peer-to-Peer hotline, available daily, to ask questions, invite suggestions, or provide real world examples from fellow healthcare administrators to help you solve any problem. This forum is an incredible resource for those in our field and a lively space for anybody to introduce new and innovative ideas!

Everybody Grows as an Individual
In addition to helping you make a contribution to the profession as a whole, a professional organization like ACHCA gives you an individual opportunity to grow your expertise within your network and be a better administrator for your facility, your network of peers, and yourself.

Earn CEUs
Keep your certifications up-to-date or earn new ones by taking courses, attending seminars, and obtaining CEUs through national and regional conferences with ACHCA and our partner associations (Florida Health Care Association, FMDA- The Florida Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care, and the Florida Association Directors of Nursing Administration).

Communicate With Your Peers
As a professional association, you will have the opportunity to create and develop relationships with other colleagues that may be mutually beneficial for years to come. Communication and networking is a vital aspect of any profession and the ACHCA offers the capacity to fill this role within your career.

Earn Your Stripes
Develop your professional prestige by becoming certified or advancing to "Fellow" status in our association; you will be regarded as a more accomplished professional within your field! Additionally, potential employers will recognize this achievement and possibly offer a more lucrative compensation package for your services, should you be in the market for a new job or promotion.

Become a Member!
If you would like to further explore membership opportunities (there are a lot of them!), you can visit the National ACHCA Chapter Website. As a member of ACHCA residing and working in the state of Florida, you will be automatically a member of the Florida Chapter of ACHCA. Additionally, the Florida Chapter has it's own monthly newsletter that you can access here. Check it out for all the latest news and events within our chapter!
