The Continuation of Central Federation CHRIE Progress

We certainly hope this finds each of you in a superb readiness for 2018-fall semester. Thanks to all of you who participated in the Central CHRIE one-minute survey. The survey was about how we could enhance Central CHRIE and create more value for our members. The message is clear! We are looking forward to a better and more exciting federation in the coming years. Due to the respondents’ suggestions, we are considering the best time to be hosting Central CHRIE conference, designing better marketing initiatives for our conference, bringing more event innovations and entertainment to our federation, more opportunities for members’ engagement, and considering other values for Central CHRIE members. Your membership is very important to Central CHRIE and we look forward to a progressive federation.

Bearing the above in mind, we are very happy to inform you that the preparation for the fourth Annual Central CHRIE Conference is in motion! Save the dates to join us in Indianapolis, Indiana on March 22-23, 2019 for the fourth Annual Central CHRIE Conference to be hosted by the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. The conference committee is planning a conference with great opportunities for Central CHRIE members/attendees to network with one another and enjoy various activities including entertainment, recreation, Indiana special cuisines, and beverages! More information about the conference is coming soon.

In addition, the Central CHRIE is looking forward to initiating two or more webinars per year for Central CHRIE members. The Central CHRIE board of directors is currently solidifying the necessary logistics, speaker series, and marketing plans for the webinars. If you have any suggestions about how we can maximize the benefits of this endeavor to Central CHRIE and other ICHRIE members, please do not hesitate to send your suggestions to
