CCA provides a variety of benefits and services for its members and the compensation industry, including:
Monthly Events - CCA conducts or co-sponsors monthly events designed to enhance members' knowledge and skills. Most of these events are 90 minutes, though occasionally half-day events are planned.The organization also offers an Annual Keynote Address/Business meeting, and a Holiday educational an networking event. Most of our program presentations are available online following the meetings, subject to presenter approval, and can be accessed via member login. Attendance at monthly events is included with membership - no separate registration fee is needed to attend, with the exception of the Annual Keynote Address/Business meeting.
Educational Workshops - offered occasionally through WorldatWork and other sources, these classes on various compensation and related topics are designed to provide practical knowledge and hands-on learning experiences. They are designed for compensation specialists, human resources generalists and other interested professionals. Additional registration fees are required.
WorldatWork Partnership - CCA is a part of the WorldatWork Local Network, an alliance of independent compensation, benefits and human resources organizations representing professionals globally. In 2013, CCA entered into a partnership with WorldatWork whereby CCA members will receive significant discounts to participate in WorldatWork hosted courses, educational resources and more at a discounted rate. This applies to WorldatWork courses hosted by CCA, and other WorldatWork Programs, here in Chicago, over the web, and throughout the country. In addition, members can still take advantage of the special discount CCA offers members’ when hosting a WorldatWork course.
Online Resources - CCA offers a variety of online tools - many available to members only. These include a Membership Directory, Career Center, CCA Knowledge Exchange (Facebook/LinkedIn type forum), Speaker's Bureau, program handouts, and research, surveys and white papers provided by our Consultant Sponsor members.
Mentor Program - Established in the fall of 2011, this is a formal one-on-one program that brings together seasoned CCA members and early to mid-career members with a deep interest in long-term compensation careers.
CCA is run entirely by volunteer members and utilizes many vendor resources in the metropolitan area. We are always looking for volunteers to be speakers at meetings, as well as work on committees, such as programs, membership, web site and the newsletter.
