The California Court Association (CCA) was formed in June 1952 with an initial membership of 135. Today, CCA's membership has grown to well over 6,000 individuals. Regular membership is open to all employees of California courts. Any person employed in California by a court-related governmental agency may apply for associate membership and any regular member who has retired from his or her position in a California court may continue membership as a retired member.
CCA provides professional development through education and training and, in addition, sponsors and conducts four regional training workshops. These workshops afford members the opportunity to attend classes on court and other career related topics, network with other court employees and learn more about their profession in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Members also have the opportunity to participate in the Certification Program that requires them to attend courses at training workshops, within their court, or through other educational institutions.
Annual membership is only $30. You may join by purchasing or renewing your membership through the CCA Store or by printing this membership application form.
You may join CCA at any time. Membership dues run for the fiscal year of July to June.
The Minute Book - The Association’s quarterly magazine, full of useful information, including biennial Study Guide, court-related articles of interest and announcements of upcoming training days. Members are strongly encouraged to participate in the production of this publication by submitting articles and other items of interest.
Courts Directory, Procedures Manuals - Published regularly through the joint efforts of Association members who contribute their time and expertise. These publications are widely sold to the courts, members of the legal profession, law enforcement and other court-related organizations. The profits derived from these sales are used to support the educational functions and committee work of the Association.
Training Workshops and Annual Convention - Regular training workshops designed to provide education and training at very affordable cost are conducted annually at northern, central and southern locations in the state. These workshops are intended to provide members with valuable instruction on generic and court specific subjects which will enhance personal and professional growth. These events provide a valuable means for the exchange of ideas, discussion of new or pending legislation, and the cultivation and enjoyment of fellowship and networking with other Association members.
Legislative Advocacy - As an employee in the vast Judicial Branch of California, membership in this professional organization gives you the standing and influence to oppose undesirable legislation and to support (and even propose) desirable legislation pertaining to the courts. As a vital part of the judicial system, you are able to play an active role in the development and outcome of your future with the courts.
