Welcome to CHQ West

CHQ West enjoys keeping Bay Area Chautauquans together in the off season with interesting people to mingle with and leading thinkers as guest speakers.

As we leave the gates of Chautauqua and head home in the Summer, we know we will miss the place, the people and the intellectual stimulation. It seemed so unfortunate.

So, in the Spring of 2012 a request was made to Chautauqua for how many people who attend during the Season are from the San Francisco Bay area. That was the beginning. We renew our CHQ spirit over picnic lunch and great guest speakers.
