The Associate Board is a group of volunteers committed to helping CCH make a difference. These young professionals run special events and small benefits from trivia nights and yoga classes to a Chicago River cruise. They also support our advocacy efforts and help us raise awareness throughout the community.

Monthly meetings are held the second Tuesday evening of each month, usually at CCH’s office in the Loop.¬† Meetings are open to anyone interested in learning more about how to get involved.
