President’s Message

Message from your ACHE-NJ President

Summer 2019

Greetings ACHE-NJ members,

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and the warmer weather. I am very excited and honored to serve as the President of this Chapter for 2019-2020. I couldn’t be happier to serve with an amazing group of colleagues who are committed to making this year successful.

Your Chapter leaders are actively coordinating educational and networking events for this upcoming year. This year, we plan to incorporate mentoring opportunities for our members and will continue to find ways of engaging members and assisting those that want to advance.

My personal goal as President this year is to move the needle with respect to member engagement and satisfaction. This is a call to service. If you have ever thought of being more engaged with your Chapter, there is no better time. Engaging with the Chapter can be done in many ways. Any active regular member can sit on a committee, whether it’s membership, education, or diversity.  If you don’t have the time to sit on a formal committee, you can volunteer to help out at an event. You’re engaged when you bring a brand new unwrapped toy to our Holiday Luncheon or take a few minutes to give advice to a new member at one of our Meet and Greets. Perhaps you’d like to volunteer to mentor early and mid-careerists or transitioning senior careerists. We will be reaching out to you about these and other opportunities and I certainly hope you will say “Yes. Count me in!”

Together, we can make this an even stronger Chapter. If you want to be added to a volunteer distribution list to hear about new opportunities, send a note to

Look out for announcements of future events and check the website frequently. You can also follow us on Linked-In and Twitter. If you have questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a note at
