Critical conversations in the community

CSHA Convos are intended to be a safe place where some of the most-needed conversations can happen … a place for insights, knowledge and awareness. CSHA hopes to elevate the unique and upcoming voices in the field, creating the opportunity for learning from the lived experiences of professionals who are navigating through these challenging times.

CSHA Convos are live events (they will not be recorded) and are available to the entire community at no charge.

Featuring panelists from across the CSHA community, each conversation will be lightly moderated and include audience Q&A for an interactive discussion. In addition, a CSHA representative will be present at each conversation to respond to audience questions and ensure feedback informs the association’s ongoing continuous improvement agenda.

Panelists will be announced soon.
