CHIPA has more than 100 members representing a diverse cross-sector of our community. Current members include: local nonprofits and service providers, schools, early childhood educators, Sonoma County employees, health care providers, business leaders, police, city officials, farmers and most importantly, community residents.
General meetings are open to the public and held quarterly. They offer the opportunity for shared learning, presentations from local leaders and providers, updates on health priority actions, and member discussion. CHIPA also convenes smaller work group meetings on a monthly basis to tackle targeted priorities that address some of the greatest needs in Southern Sonoma County. At this time, all CHIPA meetings are held virtually via Zoom.
