Dear ACHCA Member/Nursing Director,

It’s that time of year again – time to think of that special Administrator who deserves recognition for the talent and professionalism he or she brings to our field.  The New York Chapter of ACHCA is looking for candidates for our Administrator of the Year and New Administrator of the Year awards.  Nominees should exemplify the true meaning of the professional healthcare Administrator.

As a former recipient of the New Administrator of the Year award, I can tell you first-hand how honored I felt to be nominated and then selected by my peers.  It meant the world to me to be acknowledged in such a special way by those whom I’ve admired and looked up to throughout my career.  Won’t you take a few moments out of your busy day to think about someone you’d like to make feel that special?

Enclosed you will find the criteria and nomination forms for both awards. Forms may also be downloaded from the New York Chapter website. As this year’s chairman of the Awards and Community Relations Committee, I would encourage you to take the time to nominate that deserving Administrator who immediately comes to mind when you think of the best of the best. Kindly remember that your nominee must be a member of ACHCA to be eligible for either award.  Additional information regarding Administrator of the year/New Administrator of the year can be found at the ACHCA website

The deadline for award nominations is January 1, 2019 – so please make haste in submitting your nominations. Winners will be recognized at the New York Chapter’s 2019 Annual Convention in March. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (718) 927.6305 or via email at

Best regards,


Caroline Rich, LNHA
