Our Commitment to ACHE

Arkansas Health Executives Forum (AHEF) leadership works in close conjunction with ACHE.  The Division of Regional Services at ACHE manages the relationship between ACHE and local chapters.  ACHE’s membership is divided into six districts: five geographical districts and a sixth district composed of military members.

Arkansas is part of District 4 along with the neighboring States.

A Regional Services staff member has been assigned to each district. You are encouraged to call the district’s assigned contact with any questions about the role of Regents or chapters.
