Build A Beneficial Business Partnership
Health Information Management (HIM) professionals rely on their relationships with the vendors who provide up-to-date products and services. CHIA believes that by working together we will be able to better design the future of health information management. CHIA is grateful for the generous support by our Corporate Partners and other companies. However, CHIA is unable to endorse specific companies, products or services.
Organizations interested in the purposes of the California Health Information Association (CHIA) are eligible for Corporate Partnership. Each Corporate Partner may designate one representative from their company who will receive the rights and privileges of Corporate Partnership for one year.
Corporate Partner Benefits
Corporate Partner Directory
Your company will be included in the Corporate Partner Directory which includes the primary contact and a brief description of your company’s products and/or services.
CHIA Web Site Link
Your company logo will be displayed on the CHIA Web site with a link to your company’s Web site.
Exhibit Booth Pre-selection Priority
As a Corporate Partner, at the pre-selection meeting, you will have the advantage to pre-select your booth space before non-partners for the next year’s CHIA Exhibit. The pre-selection meeting is held on the last day of the current year’s CHIA Convention and Exhibit. Booth selection priority is based on a vendor point system, and Corporate Partners select ahead of non-partners. For example: A Corporate Partner with 2,000 vendor points may select a booth at the pre-selection meeting before a non-partner with 5,000 points. Companies earn vendor points for activities such as exhibiting at the CHIA Convention & Exhibit, sponsoring CHIA events throughout the year, and advertising with CHIA. Complete details, including the qualifying activities to earn vendor points, are included in the Exhibitor Points Priority Program.
Corporate Partners receive a 15% discount off published rates for advertising in the CHIA Journal and for purchase of CHIA Web site banner advertisements.
