CHAPCA On-Demand Webinar Library

CHAPCA is proud to offer FREE webinars for our provider members as part of your membership benefits.  All webinars are recorded and added to your exclusive On-Demand Webinar Library, where provider members can watch webinars that they have missed and access all related handouts from the course.  

All memberships with CHAPCA are based on a calendar year and are valid from January 1st - December 31st annually. 

Provider Membership

Provider member dues are based on your agency's OSPHD operating expenditures (Section 10, Line 54) filed every March for the previous year. For example, for 2020 provider dues, CHAPCA will base your dues on your previous year OSHPD report. 

Providers with multiple licensed offices or branches should calculate dues for each individual office location. Corporate discounts are available to agencies with four or more locations/offices in California.

Providers are encouraged to register each licensed location so they can be included in CHAPCA's online membership directory and in referrals. Only employees of providers that are members are eligible for CHAPCA membership discounts. If you have questions about calculating corporate discounts, please call the CHAPCA office at (916) 925-3770.
