California members who will be attending the 2020 CHIA Conference will need to complete a POST College Form and bring this with you to the conference on registration day (see attached link). This POST College Form helps CHIA offset the overall costs of the conference which allows CHIA to give our members the lowest registration prices as possible. Please help to do your part and complete this college form prior to registration day.
