WSHEF Advancement Committee – Volunteer Opportunities

The Advancement Committee has some great opportunities for WSHEF members looking for a chance to become more involved and give back to our profession.  Please consider one of the following opportunities (email


  • Advancement Information Sessions – Are you a recent Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives? Are you interested in getting the next batch of members motivated to work towards their own Fellow credential to demonstrate excellence in healthcare management?  Then consider volunteering to lead or assist with the development of Advancement Information Sessions every six months.  These webinars will provide information on the steps for a member to move to the next level as a board-certified healthcare executive with the ACHE Fellow designation.

  • Board of Governor (BOG) Exam Study Group – Getting ready for the BOG exam for your Fellow credential with ACHE? Consider a study group to help motivate and guide your preparation. Study groups will follow the format of the ACHE preparation guides and have periodic online meetings as determined by the group. The groups share the initial preparation of the discussion using the ACHE recommended materials.  As a bonus, each member that successfully passes the BOG exam within a year of participating in the Study Group can submit the receipts for the three ACHE study preparation books and receive up to a $240 refund.

  • Board of Governor Exam Study Group Facilitator – One member of the study group who is interested in facilitating the study group can also apply to be a study group facilitator. If selected, the member will have the ACHE exam preparation webinar series and the preparation books covered by the chapter.  The facilitator will help arrange the study group meetings and assignments. The group normally rotates taking lead on each topic to be covered at study group meeting.  Virtual meetings will be encouraged to allow for remote BOG exam candidates to be able to participate.
