ACHCA's Awards Program

The ACHCA Awards program is an opportunity to recognize individuals with demonstrated contributions and exceptional commitment to ACHCA and the field of post-acute and aging services leadership.

The Awards Subcommittee ensures that all ACHCA awards and scholarships have objective eligibility criteria and follow a fair, credible process.  Awards are issued at the individual, chapter/district, student, and facility level.  Each year, nominees include new and seasoned administrators, members and non-members, business partners, chapters and districts, and other leaders.  Facility leadership excellence is recognized through the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award (EP-FLA).  Administrators of high-performing skilled nursing facilities and leaders are eligible for this award.  All approved award candidates are celebrated and honored during the national awards ceremony at ACHCA’s annual Convocation.
