We encourage them to continue staying engaged with ACHE throughout their career in the healthcare industry. They have also reflected on their 2023 Congress experience.
I had a wonderful time attending my first American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) Congress in Chicago. I had the privilege of gaining insight from professional healthcare leaders from across the country, engaging in educational sessions, and making new connections. Thank you to ACHE – South East Texas Chapter for making this opportunity possible. I could not be more excited for my future as an aspiring healthcare leader.” – Sophia Nguyen
After attending this year’s ACHE Congress, I quickly realized that I would be able to continue advancing my professional endeavors and establishing roots within such a powerful network of accredited, respected, and admirable professionals. I connected with various leaders from around the nation, being inspired by hearing their successes and hardships all the same. I also had the opportunity to network with my own peers who I share common ground with as emerging professionals. After getting to experience something so unique, I can confidently say that this opportunity revolutionized how I see leadership in healthcare and my overall professional development. I am overly grateful for the generosity of our Southeast Texas Chapter for impacting me in such a positive way as an early careerist!” – Eric Muñoz
I am enormously grateful to have attended this year’s ACHE 2023 Congress representing Texas A&M MHA program. The conference provided a chance to understand the vast complexities of healthcare. My deepest thanks to the ACHE-SETC for providing me with the opportunity to attend. The organization continuously excels at both the local and national levels through its dedication to the advancement of healthcare leaders’ education. I strongly encourage both early careerists and senior careerists to seek membership into their local chapter.” – Zachary Garza
