Volunteerism and Recognition

Through volunteer activities, you play an important role in strengthening the healthcare profession. In appreciation of that dedication, we have implemented the American College of Healthcare Executive’s Recognition Program, which recognizes volunteer service to the healthcare management profession and to ACHE. Volunteer service is defined as unpaid service that is not performed as part of a job requirement. All active ACHE affiliates are eligible to be recognized. Points are awarded for the activities listed below performed during a convocation year. The list shows your cumulative points for the recognition program based on your ACHE records dating back to 2003.

In some instances, the activity or service was performed individually or for your ACHE chapter and these activities must be self-reported in order for you to receive credit. You may have served as mentor, served as speaker for a chapter education event or published articles for your local chapter. Please use the links below to report service in those areas.

*These items are based on self-reported data. See links below.
**Chapter service is reported by your chapter leaders
