This May we had so much fun hosting our annual Chico State Sales Invitational Competition! The Chico State Sales Invitational (CSSI) is an energetic and exciting opportunity for all students, regardless of experience! Students are encouraged to compete even if they have never taken a sales course. Students compete in brackets based on their class standing and experience.
