THE PRESIDENT'S NOTE
Robert Reardon - President

On behalf of the leadership of the Virginia Society of Healthcare Engineers I want to thank everyone for your fantastic support of VSHE. Our state membership has now exceeded 140!

We are successful due to volunteers, members, sponsors, vendors, instructors, students, and staff.  Thank You!!

At our upcoming conference in May 2016, we will provide a full range of ASHE-sponsored training to include CHFM and CHC exam preparation and the very popular Healthcare Construction Certificate. Moreover, we have heard from many of you on what you like and what we can improve in the future. I welcome your additional comments so we can improve next year’s 2016 conference. Please forward all comments to my e-mail address:   rreardon@vcu.com

We received 28 abstracts to review for our May 2016 conference. Thank you for your interest. We will notify everyone about the results in early January.

Finally, I would strongly encourage each of you to consider joining and supporting the American Society of Healthcare Engineers, ASHE. It is the only organization that represents all healthcare facility personnel. Please join. 

ASHE has designated VSHE a Platinum Chapter for the 3rd year in a row. This is the highest designation of ASHE awards. It was a total team effort. Thanks to all members for contributing to this prestigious designation. 

In closing, I want to again thank each of you for your strong support and have a safe and merry holiday.
            
~ Bob Reardon
VSHE President
