Fall Letter from the President
It is hard to believe we are officially entering Fall! While the summer flew by, we can look forward to some of the best Fall colors in the country. One of the benefits of living in Northeastern Ohio, as we say goodbye to summer, we can enjoy the fact that 2021 seemed to give us a sense of normalcy. It was great to gather again with friends and family, renew friendships with our colleagues. Our annual golf outing was a huge success thanks to the committee and the board members who volunteered their time to make it a great event! The outing reinforced the value of belonging to an organization that promotes comradery among members of different professional backgrounds with the common thread dedicated to advancing the quality of the healthcare industry in our region. Networking is a key element for our members and affiliate members to strengthen our ties to a community that helps support the rich healthcare heritage of our region. As a chapter of ASHE, we represent all of our healthcare partners on a national platform. This hit home as I walked up to the stage at the annual ASHE conference in Nashville to accept our Gold Chapter award. It is a special honor to be recognized by ASHE as a top performing chapter among the 10 regions of the country. NOSHE’s achievement is a tribute to the dedication and hard work of our outstanding board members and the participation of membership and affiliate members. This has been a rebuilding year for us due to the national crisis last year. Through the resilience and commitment of the board, we were able to navigate through the challenges. That being said NOSHE is here to stay! Thank you for your continued support. Be well and be safe!!
