President's Message

Dear CCA Members:

Firstly, I want to thank all of you who were able to attend CCA’s 67th Convention in San Diego! Many thanks go out to the 2018-2019 Executive Board, the CCA Business Team of Debbe Dreher, Tracy Brown, Rachel Myers, and Tammy Hitchcock, CCA Chairs, committee members, and Directors who spent numerous hours working and planning this memorable event. Most importantly, the CCA Executive Board wants to thank YOU, our CCA Members. Simply stated, we would not be able to accomplish any of this without members, like YOU!

Most importantly, on behalf of the 2019-2020 CCA Executive Board, I would like to take the opportunity to personally thank our 2017-2019 President, Lorraine Benavides. Over the last four years, your service as Vice President and President of CCA has been characterized by innovative ideas, strategic thinking and, most valuable, her tireless efforts to increase the credibility and visibility of CCA in all 58 counties and online presence in the social media world. The relationships she has fostered with our organization and membership, vendors and stakeholders will ensure CCA will prosper and continue to offer more opportunities to advance education for court staff. By all measures, CCA has improved on Lorraine’s watch with the new branding of CCA, cementing relationships, increasing our membership back to a healthy number, and building a growing team of committed talent inside the organization. Together with our ARC Business Team and past and current Executive Boards, we have made great strides moving forward into the next membership year! Lorraine’s energy and devotion to the role will be difficult to match, but under her leadership, she has made CCA a better organization and back on a strong foundation for me and future CCA Presidents to follow.

In the year ahead, our goal is to continue to align CCA’s mission, vision and goals to continue to expand our social media presence, retain our relevance, seek innovative ideas and maintain our effectiveness as THE leader in training, education and resource for California court employees. We continue to explore new ways to deliver training to our members through the use of online webinars and other new technologies. We are very excited about what the future has in store for CCA.

CCA’s continued promise to you is to provide quality, cost effective educational sessions, opportunities for net-working with your peers across the state, and an open invitation to be as involved as you like in our committees, board activities and educational offerings. We provide an informative quarterly newsletter, a minimum of three (3) live training days, regular e-blasts regarding upcoming events, surveys and elections, and an awe-some education conference annually.

I hope to see you all in Fairfield in November!
