Annual Conference
 
Every year in the fall, CGJA holds an Annual Conference/Membership Meeting at a different location. The conference provides an opportunity for members and grand jurors to meet and discuss experiences, ask questions, and otherwise engage in activities to enhance everyone's understanding of the grand jury system in order to contribute to CGJA's role in protecting and enhancing California's county grand jury system.
 
The 2017 conference will be held at the Embassy Suites Monterey Bay in Seaside, California, on October 29 and 30, 2017.
