Special Projects or
other efforts:
The Team has the following two major initiatives underway:


  • NFP employee wellness pilot – strategy to launch and progress NFP hospital's corporate wellness programs and build relationships with area NFP entities.  While we have been successful in identifying either qualifying NFP hospitals or networks of NFP entities, our efforts have not yielded the same parties in a given market.
  • Trade Association Relationships - an opportunity introduced during ACHRM's 2017 Annual Strategic Planning session, ACHRM is exploring providing education to trade associations.  While there are 1,000s of trade associations in the US, the Team has been interviewing trade associations to assess the possible demand for ACHRM's education.  Status report:
    • Explore relationships with national or local American Society of Association Executives based in Washington, DC and other local groups, ex. DFWAE
    • Latino / Hispanic Chambers of Commerce
  • 12/07 Meeting (Dallas) Marilyn Ellis, President, DFWAE with Pamela Autrey, Bill Lacy.
  • Pamela Autrey connected with Madeleine Crouch, the President of the Association Management Services company that manages among many trade associations. Discussion of the wellness pilot.
