Hello, FHEA members! Believe it or not, cooler weather is on the way, although as we are in Florida, we may have to give it a few more months. Your board continues to work diligently behind the scenes. We recently held our summer board meeting at the world famous Daytona Beach! This will be the location of the FHEA 33rd Spring Meeting. We will be returning to the Hilton Daytona Beach Resort for this meeting that will take place May 11-12, 2017. As part of FHEA’s commitment to bringing important educational opportunities to its members, this spring meeting will include a CHC exam review course on Thursday and the CHC exam following the spring meeting session on Friday. Information and registration for this course will be available in early 2017.




As of our Summer Board meeting, we have 290 active and life members and 556 supporting members! All of our districts reported great educational programs at their meetings and many of the programs provided CEU’s for those in attendance. Please try to attend your district meetings and give the district officers ideas for meeting topics that would bring value for you in the future.



It was my honor to attend the ASHE annual conference in Denver this July and to represent all of you when I accepted the ASHE Elite Platinum Award on the main stage!  Only nine chapters were successful in achieving the Elite Platinum Award in its inaugural year and FHEA was one of those receiving this prestigious award! Achieving the Elite award required completing all of the hurdles that have been required in the past for the Platinum Award, along with additional requirements for sustainability efforts in our chapter. FHEA stood out amongst our peers with several of our members and/or their organizations receiving rewards and recognition.



I hope you all have made your reservations for the AHCA/FHEA Annual Conference and trade show at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. This will be the 54th Annual meeting and Trade show and the 32nd AHCA Annual Seminar set for October 17-19! We expect a record number of attendees and have assembled an awesome educational program. On Sunday there will be a best ball scramble at the prestigious Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course! There is still some space for golfers and sponsors, but do hurry because the event is filling quickly! The golf tournament is being limited to 144 players to ensure that we all can complete the course. Staying on the Disney property is an awesome opportunity for you to bring your family and spend some time at this ultimate family destination.



As you all know, CMS has adopted the 2012 version of NFPA 101 “Life Safety Code” and that has caused a lot of changes for all of us in the healthcare industry. We have included a speaker in our annual meeting program to address this issue and give us all a better idea of what we should be prepared for! Please check out the entire annual meeting program on page 2 and the faculty on page 3.



Please connect with your district officers to provide ideas on how we can serve you better and let them know what you would suggest for future educational offerings. Your FHEA board feels very honored and humbled to serve you, our members! I look forward to seeing many of you at the annual meeting!!
