Debbie PoweleitWelcome to ACHE South, where the “southern hospitality” phrase truly represents its membership of being friendly. We value each other and respect the knowledge that our members hold, by generously offering support and assistance, sharing best practices and mentorship throughout our continuing education roles.

There are many ways to take advantage of the southern hospitality and strengthen your professional skills, through numerous leadership and scholarship opportunities. I encourage you to submit a proposal to present at the next conference, apply for an award or scholarship, and invite you to volunteer for a committee role as we are always open for new and innovative ways to serve our members.

Our planning committee is busy at work, scheduling our next spring conference. I hope you will join us in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in April 2019 to experience our southern hospitality and professional development opportunities. You will appreciate and value the collegiality and friendships that you form at the conference, as our members have a long history of supporting and assisting one another.
