    Re: How do I get the most out of ACHE

    Hello-thank you for posting on the message board! There are many resources you can utilize to maximize your ACHE membership.  First, I recommend starting at the Student Area of ache.org (www.ache.org/Students).  The Student Area is a compilation of links to resources found on ache.org that we think Student Associates will find useful. In the Student Area, you will find links to the Directory of Postgraduate Administrative Fellowships, the scholarship and awards program for Student Associates, career advice from ACHE, networking tools and much more.

    Secondly, I encourage you to reach out to your local chapter. When you joined ACHE, you automatically received membership with a chapter in your area. Your local chapter can be a gateway for establishing relationships with peers, senior executives, healthcare leaders and experts in the field. Additionally, chapters offer educational programs. To find your local chapter, go to www.ache.org/Chapters.

    ACHE’s high-quality publications and books are an excellent way to stay current about the profession. As a benefit of joining ACHE, you will begin receiving a complimentary subscription to Healthcare Executive magazine and your choice of either the Journal of Healthcare Management or Frontiers of Health Services Management. As a member, you can view current and past issues online. You can access online versions of ACHE’s publications and more than 100 books from Health Administration Press at www.ache.org/Hap.

    Similarly, ACHE offers educational programs to further your professional development. Seminars and special programs are offered across the country, online and through self-study. You can find the complete list of educational programs at www.ache.org/Education.

    Last, you can find a plethora of career resources at www.ache.org/Careers. ACHE members can access additional resources by logging in to the Members-Only Career Services tab on the top left side of the site. I included some links below that may help you get started navigating the Career section of ache.org.
