Call for CHIA Leaders
"Leaders become great, not because of their power,
but because of their ability to empower others." - John Maxwell 
Nominations for CHIA Board of Directors and AHIMA Delegates for the 2018 CHIA Ballot are now being accepted through Friday, September 15, 2017 . Each term of office will begin July 1, 2018. 

CHIA is seeking nominations for next year’s leaders and we are interested in you! We all have many gifts and talents, why not consider sharing these talents as a CHIA Officer or Delegate? With your help, we can continue the tradition of nominating highly qualified and experienced members for leadership positions. 

Upon the recommendation of last year’s CHIA Nominating Committee, the CHIA Board of Directors approved a revised nomination process. A task force of the Nominating Committee reviewed the criteria and selection process for each candidate. The criteria for each position was standardized and the online CHIA Leadership Application Form was developed to capture the same information for each candidate.
