Our Venue 

CHIA's 16th Annual Educational Conference will take place aboard the historic Queen Mary.  

The grand ocean liner ferried passengers between New York, Southampton, England, and Cherbourg, France throughout the mid-20th Century.  Now it is a hotel unlike any other. The Queen Mary is the events center of Long Beach, and we are thrilled to bring our annual event to one of America's landmarks.
