CHIA’s Component Local Associations provide members with local access to professional education, networking, as well as leadership and volunteer opportunities. CLAs also serve as an important forum for communicating state and national issues and keeping members informed of regional affairs that affect health information management. Each CHIA member is assigned to the CLA based on the county in which he/she lives and/or works.
