A tremendous networking opportunity for new and more seasoned members alike!
This event is for all ACHE of North Texas members who want to become more involved and/or become more connected/networked with their fellow ACHENTX members.
The ACHE North Texas Networking & Membership Committees cordially invites you to the ACHE of North Texas chapter’s next Networking Blitz. This fun event will allow members to get to know one another in meaningful ways. There will be special fun activities, where personal connections will be made. The intent of this program is to bring members together to get a real in depth view of ACHENTX, to enable you to meet some of the chapter’s leadership and other fellow ACHE members, and to help you map out how to best take advantage of the plethora of local and national benefits and opportunities available to you through ACHE. It’s a way to “let us get to know you” as well and become a part of your professional network.
We will start with informal networking between 5:30-6pm, and at 6pm, we will dive into the more structured portion of the evening.
Our guest speaker for the evening will be Kris Sanders, MBA, FACHE – Senior Vice President, Northern Market Growth & Development, Children’s Health.
We are looking forward to meeting each of you and/or getting to know you better.
A light dinner will be offered.
