During the March 2017 ACHE Congress ACHE-SETC was presented an Award of Chapter Distinction from the ACHE Chapter Management and Awards Program. This program was established to “ensure the delivery of high-quality services to ACHE members and other healthcare executives at the local level. ACHE designed this program to provide chapter performance incentives and acknowledge outstanding accomplishments based on objectively measured results”. The award performance standards on which the awards are based are as follows:
Education and Networking Performance
This measure is a simple calculation of indexed attendee hours, which are programming hours multiplied by the number of attendees for each event divided by total chapter membership at the beginning of the current year.
Chapters must provide at least 13.4 hours of chapter event programming per chapter member.* ACHE-SETC provided 23.3 hours of chapter event programming per chapter member.
Net Membership Growth
Net membership growth is measured by the percentage difference between the total number of ACHE-affiliated chapter members in all membership categories at the beginning of the year and at the end of the year.
Chapters must have a net membership growth of 9.6 percent. *
Level of Member Satisfaction
Each chapter must have a top-ranking level of member satisfaction.
Chapters must receive 4.0 or higher on a five-point scale in chapter member satisfaction. *
ACHE-SETC received 4.0 in chapter member satisfaction.
Advancement of Eligible Members
Advancement of eligible members is measured by the percentage of the eligible pool of members affiliated with the chapter who advance to Fellow or pass the Board of Governors Exam each year.
A Chapter must advance a number greater than or equal to 9.2 percent of the chapter members eligible to advance at the beginning of the year.*
