There are several Chapters within CCPA, representing various Regional or Interest groups.

Many members belong to one or more Chapters depending on their field of work, their location or their interests. When you become a member of a Chapter, you receive email updates from them in regards to events, advancements in the field and many other information items. You join a community of like-minded practitioners and have the opportunity to connect on topics that matter to you. During conferences, you also have the chance to meet and work together on issues involving that Chapter’s particular mission.

There is an additional fee to be part of a Chapter. Call the National office for more details on how to join (Toll free: 1-877-765-5565).

Chapters are refundable up to 30 days after initial purchase.

Chapter Support Fund

At the May 2011 Board of Directors Meeting the creation of a Chapter Support Fund was discussed. This discussion resulted from a Chapter Presidents’ meetings, where some Chapters requested increased support from CCPA for Chapter initiatives.
