General Conference Information

CCA is pleased to offer three distinct and timely statewide conferences each year.  In 2014-15, CCA transitioned to a revised schedule that more closely follows membership, bargaining, and legislative calendars.

Fall Conference
The Fall Conference is always held in early October and is dedicated to enhancing bargaining skills and coordinating strategies focused on collective bargaining. In addition to sessions on bargaining-related issues, we have our first Council meeting of the academic year. Legislative updates will also be offered at the Fall Conference.

The Fall Conference also features either our CCA California Leadership Academy or our CCA Building Strong Locals Academy.

Winter Conference
The Winter Conference is held in mid-February.  The Winter Conference highlights Advocacy in addition to lobbying and contract enforcement issues. We also offer one of the following Academies at our Winter Conference:  Bargaining, Grievance, or Advocacy.  Legislation pertaining to Community Colleges will also be addressed. There is no Council meeting at the Winter Conference.

Spring Conference
The Spring Conference is held in April and highlights membership.   At this conference, we also highlight our “We Honor Ours” (WHO) Awards winners. This is a special program which honors our own local and state union leaders. We also hold our last Council of the academic year at the Spring Conference. The Spring Conference also features our CCA California Leadership Academy or our CCA Building Strong Locals Academy Graduations. Members will also receive Legislative  updates pertaining to California Community Colleges.
