Individual Membership Benefits

Individual membership is open to students and individuals who work in a health-related organization or company at varying stages of their careers.

Benefits of Membership


Members develop long-lasting relationships with people in similar positions across the country. By becoming involved in a regional chapter, they benefit from local connections and career development opportunities.

The CCHL Circle

The CCHL Circle is an online community where CCHL members can connect, learn, and develop. CCHL Members have access to foundational leadership development services, while those with their CHE or Fellowship designations have access to specialized advanced leadership development opportunities. Subscriptions are available for those wanting to access the advanced leadership development opportunities who may not yet have their CHE or Fellowship.
