81st Annual ACHE Conference
October 14-16, 2019 Denver, Colorado 

DenverA new feature of the conference this year was a track specifically designated for the themes of influence and leadership. There were six sessions within this track and they were designed to help attendees establish and develop a vision for personal leadership, create and implement a plan to set and accomplish goals, and to provide tools and resources for personal and organizational development and growth. Sessions for this inaugural leadership track of sessions were the following:

Individuals who attended at least four of the six leadership sessions received a certificate of achievement and designated as an ACHE South Influencer. Feedback on this new track for the conference was very positive, and it is possible that this will be an ongoing feature of ACHE South conferences.

South Wins!

ACHE holds a scholarship drive during every annual conference. These funds are designated to be used for the grants and scholarships awarded to ACHE members. This year's goal of $3500 was met at the last minute with a rousing round of donations during the final minutes of the last general session. As hands went up with $20 bills, the region giving the most money shifted from Great Plains to West to Mid-Atlantic, South and back to Great Plains. In the end, South would not accept a loss and stepped up to donate the most funds. As Chair, Patti Spaniola was pleased to accept the award on South's behalf. Win-Win for everyone!
