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 2022 CGJA Annual Conference was held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton – San Rafael, Marin County on October 23 and 24, 2022. The theme for this years' conference was Celebrating Grand Jury Successes at the Local Level. The keynote address speaker was Damon Connolly, the District 1 county supervisor from Marin county who spoke on the subject of Effective Grand Jury Reports. He was followed by outgoing CGJA President Lou Panetta who provided the audience with the Presidents' State of the Association address. The results of the 2022 election along with the Boards' newly elected officers were announced along with the Excellence in Reporting and the Angelo Rolando Service awards. The 2022 conference also featured 3 very popular panel discussions on the topics of Stronger Grand Juries Through Building Awareness, Grand Jury Volunteers, and various Best Practices for Chapters.

CGJA is pleased to announce that the 2023 Annual Conference will be held at the Embassy Suites Walnut Creek, Contra Costa County on October 22 and 23, 2023. Look for additional information in the spring of 2023.
