Planting the Seeds of Success: CHASE Annual Spring Banquet Thursday, April 2
This year’s annual Health Care Administration/CHASE Spring Banquet, “Planting the Seeds of Success” is scheduled for Thursday, April 2 at the Plaza Hotel & Suites in Eau Claire. Randy Lindner, President and CEO of the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB), will present the keynote address.
In addition to Mr. Lindner’s keynote presentation, the fifth annual Practicum Open House will begin at 5 p.m. at the Plaza Hotel. Similar to a job or internship fair, the Practicum Open House gives exposure to the practicum sites and organizations that will be available to students as they enter the practicum and venture into the workplace. Following the open house is a social hour at 6 p.m., and the banquet will begin at 7 p.m.
Please mark your calendars as your presence is very important at this event. Our students look forward to the opportunity to interact with graduates of the program and professionals in the field of health and aging services.

Preceptor Training Session to Be Held April 2
If you are a preceptor for the Health Care Administration practicum program, please arrive at the Plaza Hotel at 3:30 p.m. on April 2 to earn some continuing education credit and participate in this CHASE sponsored training session.
Title: “The Future Preceptor Partnership Model”
The preceptor/student relationship is primary to the success of the practicum. Vital to this relationship is effective communication and mentorship between you and your student. We are looking forward to participating in a dialog about current and future partnership as a preceptor.

This past December, two of our members from the student chapter of the American College of Health Care Administrators, were given the opportunity to attend the National ACHCA Winter Marketplace.

Required Careerlink Subscription Aims to Benefit Students, Employers
Beginning in Fall 2009, all College of Business Students, including Health Care Adminstration majors will be required to purchase an account on Blugold Careerlink, an employment database offered through the University's Career Services. This database allows UW-Eau Claire students to find and apply to a variety of employment opportunities throughout the nation. Employers are able to search for and/or receive the resumes of qualified candidates.
College of Business Career and Employment Manager Jessica Gardner said the requirement will be an easier way for students and alumni to build stronger networks with potential employers.
"We're looking forward to enhancing connections for students and alumni with employers in the health care field." Gardner said. For more information, or if you have questions contact Jessica at email@example.com or 715-836-2927.
The interface includes areas where users can upload resumes, coverletters and references which subscribing employers can access. Employers can also post job and internship openings at no cost.
The cost for students to register on Blugold Career Link will be a one-time fee of $25.00 which will give them lifetime access to the online network.
