2019-2020 poster sets

CDA is currently updating the required employment poster set to reflect new regulations and compliance requirements for 2019-2020. CDA will distribute one set free of charge to members who are practice owners.

In April, CDA will begin mailing poster sets to members who have confirmed they are practice owners. If you have not been identified as a practice owner, please update your profile at cda.org or request a poster set be mailed to your office by contacting CDA. Additional sets can be purchased from the CDA Practice Support Store for $15 each.

If you have any questions regarding how to receive a poster set, please call CDA at 800-232-7645.
