CHIA continually seeks members to fill volunteer roles. Member involvement in volunteer roles is essential in building a strong association, one that provides optimal educational, networking, resources, and leadership opportunities for members.
Get involved in CHIA leadership. Volunteering in your professional organization is a great way to hone your leadership skills, increase your professional contacts, and to give back to your profession. But where do you start? If you have never volunteered for your professional association, a good place to start is to volunteer for your Component Local Association (CLA). Most of CHIA’s leaders first volunteered within their CLA where they learned more about CHIA and CLA activities, events, leadership roles and volunteer opportunities.
Participating on one of the CHIA Committees is a great way to volunteer and it has many benefits for you and for your professional association. You will give back to the HIM profession, be able to socialize with peers while sharing your skills and working toward a common goal.
Most committees conduct their meetings via phone conference and e-mail. Selected committees may also have a face-to-face organizational meeting.
Whether you are a new CHIA volunteer or a “seasoned” volunteer, let us know in what areas you would like to participate. The Volunteer Questionnaire form includes a brief description of each committee’s role. Volunteer requests and information will be shared with both CHIA and CLA leaders for their use in making appointments to volunteer roles. Please consider how you would like to share your talents as a CHIA volunteer. Complete the Volunteer Questionnaire form and e-mail it to Volunteer@CaliforniaHIA.org. Thank you for helping CHIA make a difference.
