management programs could promote ACHE if they had a flyer from ACHE to
distribute to their students (the flyer could include basic information about
ACHE affiliation, benefits, resources available through membership, student
testimonials, and the cost of membership). Most instructors in my program do not mention involvement in
ACHE. If ACHE connected more with
the programs and made the benefits of involvement known to the professors, I
think the professors would be more interested in promoting ACHE to students
through advising and in classes.
Associates could promote ACHE through their university healthcare
administration student organizations.
At Grand Valley State University, our graduate student healthcare
organization promotes ACHE by featuring speakers from the local ACHE
chapter. At our first event of the
year, we always have a speaker discuss the benefits of ACHE and why students
should consider getting involved in it.
Not many students from my program get involved in ACHE, but I think more
would become student members if the student organization were more connected
with the local ACHE chapter. I
think one of the best ways to promote student involvement in ACHE is through
the local ACHE chapters being more involved with the university healthcare
organizations (supporting them with speakers, mentoring, making connections for
