Thanks to our Immediate Past President, Helaine Ledany, 2014 was another successful year. Our own Katie Richardson was appointed as the ACHCA District Two Director overseeing the New York and New Jersey Chapters. Former Past President, Norda Bellantoni will be receiving the 2015 ACHCA Outstanding Member Award at Convocation in San Antonio. The NJ Chapter will also be receiving the 2015 Cultural Diversity Award at Convocation. Lastly, we are proud that our own Michael Hotz, ACHCA Chair and Past Chapter President, continues to lead the way in making ACHCA an outstanding progressive professional organization for the individual Administrator, AIT, Student and Business Affiliate.
Another important individual professional growth initiative is for those of you who are not Certified or a Fellow to attain these distinctions. This is truly an honor to have these individual designations as there are many advantages associated in having these honors. As the Chair of the ACHCA Professional Advancement Committee, please contact me for further information regarding Certification or Fellow Status.
I encourage all of our members to become active in any way possible. There are many ways to become involved on our various working committees. Please let me know if you are interested or if you would like more information about each of these committees. I hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming events.
Thank you for your continued support.
Robert J. Reyes, CNHA, FACHCA
President, NJ Chapter of ACHCA
