Call for Committee Volunteers!
Working Together to Transform Health and Healthcare
Greetings, all. We wanted to let you know about a great opportunity to help NAHSE-Houston do even more for our local healthcare professionals and the Greater Houston community we serve. We have recently formed several new volunteer committees. Committee work is an important way that members develop the future of the association through creation of policy and programming, member and public education, and governance of the organization. If you have interest in building resume-ready skills, expanding your network, and helping to grow the organization, please consider joining one. NAHSE depends on its members to get involved and advance our mission. Here’s a more in-depth look at what we have in mind…
The Marketing & PR Committee helps generate awareness and brand equity for the chapter. The committee manages our external communications, including eNewsletter, social media, press releases, and website. They also promote coming events through promotions and marketing collateral.
The Programming Committee's role is to assist and provide support to the planning, promotion, and execution of NAHSE Houston events. Programming Committee members may assist with the identification of meeting venues and guest speakers, as well as lead collaboration with partner organizations. With the growing number of events in the area, additional volunteers are vital to the success of the events.
The Membership Committee recruits members and assists in the development of strategies for promoting membership in NAHSE. They extend an official welcome and help orient new members to the chapter and organization. Membership works with Programming to create networking, learning, and volunteer opportunities for the membership of NAHSE and our partner organizations.
Committee members are expected to:
- Participate in committee meetings (frequency varies by group)
- Respond timely to organizational requests
- Keep committee materials and conversations confidential
Cescely Collins, NAHSE Houston’s secretary and programming chair is currently working on her second Master’s at Strayer University (Jack Welch Executive MBA Program). She has a Masters in Health Care Administration & Management from Texas Southern University. Cescely is looking for a challenging position in the health care industry that will allow her to grow and use the knowledge and skills she’s learned. Cescely describes herself as a motivated person, able to manage multiple projects with strong communication and leadership skills.
Her short-term career goal is to obtain certifications in Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt, Project Management, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and become Board Certified with American College of Healthcare Executives. "I believe to be an effective leader in healthcare you have to take into consideration that trends change and you must stay abreast of policies and different ways to improve processes", Cescely said.
Her long-term career goal is to pursue her passion of advocating for patients by becoming an Administrator/Director and ultimately become a Chief Operating Officer.
"Joining NAHSE was one of the best decisions I could have made. The first meeting that I attended, I was blown away by other like-minded people that looked like me and had the drive that I did,” Cescely said. "When I attended my first National Conference in Las Vegas, NV last year, it was as if my entire family had come. It is truly a family-oriented organization that takes pride in advancing everyone”, she added.
Cescely loves to work out. She’s ran six half-marathons and will soon start training for a full marathon. She participates in CrossFit three times a week and still manages to do community work through Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. As a leader, her favorite motto is "leaders never stop learning."
