Congressman Pocan, Speaker Vos join together to urge Wisconsin residents to stay safe
Madison, WI— Keeping ourselves, our friends, neighbors, and loved ones safe is not political.
That’s the message delivered by Republican Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Democratic Congressman Mark Pocan, who appear together in the latest “Stop the COVID Spread!” coalition public education announcement aimed at combating the pandemic raging throughout Wisconsin. The new ad, the coalition’s fifth, will begin airing on broadcast and digital channels throughout the state today as rampant community spread of COVID-19 continues to stress the state’s health care system.
Representing different political parties, geographic areas and bodies of government, Congressman Pocan and Speaker Vos have come together for a cause that all Wisconsin residents can agree on: beating COVID-19. “After another election, it’s clear we have differences, but we can also agree,” says Speaker Vos in the ad. “We can still live our lives and be sensible and safe.” Both elected officials speak about the importance of preventative measures including wearing masks, hand washing, practicing social distancing, and staying home whenever possible. “We have to do all we can to stay safe,” adds Congressman Pocan.
“Wisconsin needs unified responses to the COVID pandemic and aligning around a common message is critical,” said Eric Borgerding, President and CEO of the Wisconsin Hospital Association. “We’re grateful to Speaker Vos and Congressman Pocan for joining us to send the public a crucial message about working together to slow COVID’s spread.” “We all need to do our part to stop the spread of COVID and get Wisconsin out of this public health crisis,” added Wisconsin Counties Association Executive Director Mark D. O’Connell. “As Congressman Pocan and Speaker Vos have demonstrated, keeping Wisconsin safe is something upon which we can all agree.”

You have shown incredible resilience and leadership as you’ve faced new challenges this year. We are grateful so many talented and dedicated leaders choose the FACHE® credential to demonstrate their commitment to healthcare management excellence.
As you know, the Board of Governors made the decision to change the membership tenure requirement for initial Fellow advancement from three years to one year effective Jan. 1, 2021. We’ve been actively communicating this change via email and social media as well as in our recent Advancement Information Session—the most popular one we’ve ever hosted. We remain confident the change will make Fellow status possible for more of our Members who meet the requirements and wish to advance to this important leadership level.
Keep in mind that while the membership tenure requirement was adjusted, the other requirements for Members to obtain the FACHE credential remain the same.

On September 15th, ACHE-WI Leadership Development Program hosted a 90 minute “Coaches Panel” to offer an opportunity to gain perspective from the ACHE-WI Leadership Development Program alumni. This panel was a new addition to the Leadership Development Program curriculum. The panel members answered a series of questions that offered insight into what participation in the Leadership Development Program has provided and an opportunity to gain diverse perspective on leadership, career advancement and networking. The coaches offered advice to early careerists, many books to reference and quotes to live by. Some of the inspiring feedback and advice included:
- Train your replacement
- Take the time for the things that matter to you
- Seek first to understand and then to be understood
- Having an empty seat is better than the wrong person in the seat
- Don’t burn bridges
- Know yourself
- Have an open mind and form your own opinions
- Invest in yourself
- People don’t always remember what you have done but they do remember how you made them feel
Thank you to all who took the time to make this event possible.
