Strategic Plan

WA-ACHE Strategic Plan (2024 – 2026)

The WA-ACHE Chapter’s Strategic Plan is designed to align with the strategic plan set forth by the national ACHE Board of Governors. This strategic plan strives to develop leaders within the local market and set them up for success in managing the dynamic challenges the industry places on them. The plan aligns with the core values of the national ACHE organization, focused on championing Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in our Leadership through educational events promoting Lifelong Learning and Integrity across the all-career stages, disciplines and settings.

In 2023 the chapter set out to align with the national organizations ambitions of being a Catalyst, Connectors, and a Trusted Partner. As a Catalyst the chapter focused on advancing health through the lens of equity by hosting quarterly DEI Discussions and creating affinity groups for members of the chapter. As Connectors the chapter hosted a Better Together networking event with non-ACHE partners and hosted a virtual education event with the SoCal ACHE chapter. The chapter also expanded sponsorship through the chapters first annual conference. As a Trusted Partner, the chapter launched its first Advancement class, allowing for members to prepare for their Board of Governors exam.​
