The Wisconsin Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives is a fully chartered chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives that was established in March 2004 as a not-for-profit organization to serve the needs of Wisconsin’s health care community. Currently we serve over 800 healthcare executives in Wisconsin that are affiliated with ACHE in all fields including hospitals, health agencies, consulting firms, educational organizations, and related public and private organizations.

The primary purpose of the Chapter is to meet the professional needs of its members, promote excellence in healthcare leadership by providing education and training, aiding in career advancement and embracing communication and networking relationships among colleagues in Wisconsin.

Planned activities of the chapter include regional networking meetings and Chapter sponsored educational programs across the state. As a designated Chapter of ACHE, many of the educational programs are eligible for Face-to-Face and Qualified education credits.

If you are not already a member, we invite you to join the Chapter and participate in the upcoming events. Currently there here is no cost to join the Chapter and you do not have to be an affiliate of ACHE. Participation in future chapter activities may enhance your careers as we plan to provide networking opportunities with area healthcare executives on current and relevant topics.

Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

The Wisconsin Chapter embraces diversity within the healthcare management field and recognizes that priority as both an ethical and business imperative.  The Wisconsin Chapter values diversity and initiatives that promote diversity because they can improve the quality of the organization’s workforce.  The Wisconsin Chapter also values and actively promotes diversity in its leaders and members because a diverse participation can serve as a catalyst for improved decision making, increased productivity, and a competitive advantage.

Further, the Wisconsin Chapter works to foster an inclusive environment that recognizes the contributions and supports the advancement of all, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability because an inclusive environment can enhance the quality of healthcare, improve hospital/community relations, and positively affect the health status of society.  This priority is reflected in the chapter’s various activities and initiatives.
