Providing relevant, timely and accurate information to members is an important aspect of the Association. The CHHMA has invested in electronic communication tools and database development to accomplish this objective. Development of our website and the use of email allow us to deliver relevant information direct to the right person within our member companies. The CHHMA website is managed in-house, allowing for daily changes and quick updates.
