Michael Nanzer, DPT, MBA, FACHE
2024 MCACHE President

ACHE’s Annual Congress in March set a record for attendance with over 5,400 attendees. The MCACHE chapter had a great showing of members at Congress, and the MCACHE/GLACHE networking mixer supported by MHA, exceeded all expectations. Congress is a great event to gain new perspectives, share practices, and build relationships that impact health with other healthcare leaders. Next year’s Congress will be in Houston from March 24 – 27, mark your calendar to attend, you won’t regret it.

Another opportunity for great education is the MCACHE local offerings, which are second to none.  Some of the recent MCACHE programs were, a Conversation with C-Suite, Mary Kummer Naber, President/CEO at PACE Southeast MI, the BGSU From Crisis to Recover program on the East Palestine, OH Train Derailment, a session on Brain Based Coaching, and the HFMA/GLACHE/MCACHE Women’s Conference on Resilience. The MCACHE Emerging Leaders and Programming Committees continue to provide relevant and meaningful education and networking opportunities to our members – a listing of upcoming events.

Strong committee involvement is what makes the MCACHE chapter stand out. We have teams of effective and driven committee members and chairs, who continue to advance the cause of our organization. If you are interested in learning more about the committees, or potentially joining one, please reach out to me or any leader in MCACHE and we will be more than happy to help connect you. You can also complete an online form and someone will contact you.

We have also seen increased sponsorship activity, with two new silver level sponsors this year. Please check out the sponsor page to see the organizations that are supporting our association.

Upon returning from ACHE’s Congress, one of the many takeaways for me was learning that as we age, most people regret things they didn’t do, and opportunities they didn’t act on, then the things they actually did that didn’t work out. Definitely something to think about next time you are facing decision paralysis. Also, something to use with your colleagues when you hear they are “on the fence” about joining MCACHE. Help them avoid future regret by taking the opportunity to join something great!

Have a great spring, and I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!
