Not a member yet? Why not?

The ACHCA-Michigan Chapter traces back to 1968 when early leaders of the long term care field in Michigan formed a group to share knowledge and networking. That group then joined with the ACHCA to enhance their programs and expand their knowledge.

National ACHCA was founded in 1962 and is a non-profit professional membership association providing superior educational programming, professional certification and career development opportunities for its members.
