CHS Designation Renewal
The CHS designation must be renewed annually with The Institute. This renewal includes an application process known as a "designation renewal" for the continued right to use the CHS marks and license. Click here for the CHS Renewal Application.
Other requirements included within the annual renewal are the annual licensing fee, 10 hours of CE, adherence to the Code of Professional Conduct, and the requirement of E&O coverage. View the CPC here
The renewal term for the CHS designation ends December 31 of each renewal year. CHS designation holders failing to renew their CHS by February 28 of the renewing year will lose their rights to publicly promote themselves as having the CHS and will have their designation revoked.
CHS designation holders failing to meet all continuing obligation requirements also risk having their designation revoked due to non-compliance. The Institute has several policies in place including a reinstatement policy for revoked and lapsed CHS designations, as well as CE exemption for special cases.
The annual licensing fee for the CHS designation for 2017 has been set at $190.
