About Us

The Georgia Association of Healthcare Executives, or GAHE, is committed to the development of leadership skills, knowledge exchange, and facilitation of networking opportunities for our members.

We are the most active professional organization of our kind in Georgia and have evolved in response to the changing nature of the healthcare industry. GAHE represents a broad range of healthcare executives, professionals, consultants and the faculty and students of healthcare administration programs. We are committed to providing our members timely, relevant educational programs, a forum for professional exchange, and a network for career development.

Founded in 1982 as a professional healthcare administrators group, GAHE formalized its affiliation with the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) in 1991. In 2003 it was chartered by ACHE as the only chapter affiliate within the state of Georgia.

GAHE is the award-winning independent local chapter of ACHE for the state of Georgia. We were recognized as a “Chapter of Merit” for 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2008, and the “Local Chapter of the Year” for 2001.


GAHE is led by a volunteer, elected Board of Directors. Terms are 1 year and election is held at the GAHE Annual Meeting.


We invite you to attend one of our programs, webinars, educational or networking events throughout the year. Members and non-members are welcome to attend.
