California Association of Healthcare Leaders (CAHL)
The California Association of Healthcare Leaders (CAHL) is an independent chapter for the Northern and Central California Region, chartered by the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). The chapter represents a merger of three previous chapters; Bay Area Healthcare Executives (BAHE), Healthcare Executives of Greater Sacramento Valley, and Sierra Pacific Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
CAHL serves healthcare executives throughout Northern and Central California. The chapter's geography covers 50 of California's 58 counties and extends as far south as Kern County and San Luis Obispo and North to the Oregon border.
Women Health Care Executives (WHCE)
Women Health Care Executives of Northern California (WHCE) is a dynamic community of professional women in the San Francisco Bay Area who encourage and inspire each other at every stage of their careers.

In 1980, a handful of women began to gather informally to talk about the unique challenges they faced in a field where more and more women were breaking through into leadership roles. They recognized the need to share information on developments in the healthcare industry, as well as career opportunities and resources. The meetings expanded, and the small group started to offer networking and skill-building programs.

Today, WHCE builds on a proud history of providing a forum for networking, education, and mutual support. Our nearly 200 members represent the full range of health-related disciplines throughout the Bay Area.

Prominent among our aims is to advance young women in healthcare—most notably by awarding two annual scholarships. And we celebrate the achievements of our members and other woman healthcare leaders in many ways, including the coveted Woman of the Year award.
