Dear Members and Associates,

I would like to wish you all a prosperous New Year as we welcome 2019 with enthusiasm and success. The success and growth of our association is a direct reflection of your commitment to improve, desire to cultivate your knowledge, and your continuous engagement with TGCAHQ.

2018 was transformational within the healthcare quality industry as new and exciting concepts emerged within the landscape. Our theme “Engaging the NEXT Generation of Healthcare Quality Professionals”  received an overwhelming response from early career quality professionals who have a hunger to learn and great feedback from seasoned professionals who want to cultivate their skills and serve as mentors within our community.

We would like to continue this momentum in 2019 as we embark on a journey to enhance knowledge sharing, engagement and networking across the Greater Houston Area. We have a dynamic Board of Directors with diverse skills to lead us on this journey. Over the course of the year we will highlight the 2019 Board Members and 2019 Association Volunteers to allow you to get to know our leaders.

We listened to your feedback, our board is preparing a dynamic learning series centered on cutting edge technology and best practice interventions that promote quality outcomes. As the year progresses, we will alert you to new tools, resources and growth opportunities. We are continually looking for people who are interested in volunteering their time and skills to help in various aspects of our chapter. If you are interested, contact us to learn about our current volunteer opportunities!

I encourage you to stay connected – stay engaged – stay committed… as we partner to promote healthcare quality!
