CHLA Team

CHLA has a seasoned team of employees, some with over 25 years of association experience. We’ve got you covered – with over 200 years of experience. We have three CAE’s (Certified Association Executives) on staff. The Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential is the marker of a committed association professional who has demonstrated the wide range of knowledge essential to manage an association in today’s challenging environment. We are also lucky enough to have two Certified Meeting Professionals, (CMP) on our team. The CMP credential is recognized globally as the badge of excellence in the meeting, convention, exhibition, and event industry. The qualifications for certification are based on professional experience, education, and a rigorous exam. Our team also has two individuals certificated in organizational management through the Institute for Organization Management (IOM). This certification was designed to enhance individual performance, elevate professional standards, and recognize association, chamber of commerce, and other nonprofit professionals who demonstrate the knowledge essential to the practice of nonprofit management.
