Advancement Through Membership

GOAL: Extend and Adapt ACHE offerings and brand position to meet the needs of the emerging market in healthcare leadership. Today’s healthcare leaders come from increasingly diverse settings, disciplines and backgrounds. Education programs, career services, the FACHE® credential, networking and volunteer leadership opportunities need to be extended to and adapted for the changing healthcare leader.


All active ACHE members who live in the geographic territory of our chapter are automatically members of the Alaska Healthcare Executive Network. There are no dues requirements. AHEN membership wholly depends upon the current status of ACHE membership.
