Task Force Chairs

Task force chairs are expected to take on a minimum of a two-year volunteer period, serving one year “in training” and a second year “leading.” Interested members must have served on a task force for a minimum of one year before expressing interest in becoming chair during the annual volunteer recruitment process.

Workgroups & Short-Term Commitments

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved with CHPA outside of our year-long task forces. Here are a few ways to get involved in as little as 15 minutes.

Workgroups are similar to task forces but are a shorter expected amount of time to commit and often meet for a shorter period of time instead of serving year-round.

If you’d like to participate in any of these opportunities, submit the volunteer interest form.

CCHP exam items are the questions and responses on the CCHP exam. These questions are stored and ultimately reviewed by the CCHP Task Force for inclusion on the CCHP exam. These items help to keep the CCHP exam current and relevant to the industry. Volunteers are required to complete item writing training to help develop well-structured questions. Volunteers must have the CCHP certification.
CHPA from time to time submits program proposals to other stakeholders and collaborative associations to showcase industry best practices and thought leadership. Help review program guidelines to develop an educational/informational proposal for other associations about the corporate housing industry.
