President's Message - June 2018

by Rick Barker, Director of Facilities, Sutter Roseville Medical Center; CSHE State President


CSHE has started the summer kickoff of the annual chapter golf tournaments! The Northeastern golf event kicked off the series with enormous success. Upcoming is the San Francisco (7/23) at Blackhawk Country Club; San Diego (8/24) at Rancho Bernardo, Redwood (9/18) at Scandia (yes, a Miniature Golf tournament…counts!!), Central Valley (10/8) at The Reserves at Spanos Park, and Inland Empire (10/9) at Hidden Valley Golf Club. At the conclusion of this eBulletin will be golf ‘Save the Dates’ with registration information. All of the tournaments provide an excellent opportunity to pull back from the work environment and network with colleagues.

Education has been at the forefront of the CSHE Strategic Plan over the past few years. The monthly Education Webinars’ have been continuously picking up participants and proving to be a great success. I would like to acknowledge David Baker, CSHE State Secretary, who has coordinated this successful program. Dave’s efforts, plus others have led to the program’s success. My hat is off to David, Thank you!

Over the past year, we have enjoyed the skillful assistance of Beth Demeter, who has maintained our database and website, as well as, provided assistance to Joyce. Beth will be continuing as the CSHE Graphic Designer, and transitioning her role of database administrator to April Nelson, who joined CSHE on June 25th. April has extensive experience in Association Membership and Database management. Prior to joining CSHE, she had similar roles with California District Attorneys Association, California Bankers Association and Western Insurance Agents Association, Inc. Please join me in welcoming April to CSHE!

This year the 27th CSHE Southern CA Seminar will be September 14 at the Disneyland Paradise Pier Hotel in Anaheim. The 11th CSHE Northern CA Seminar will be October 18th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Concord. The brochures have been emailed to CSHE members and posted to the website. Make sure to register and I look forward to seeing you there!
