CGJA Elections


We invite you to consider becoming a candidate for CGJA director or recommending another CGJA member as a candidate.

Every year, we elect 6 of our 12-member board: 2 from each region for 2-year terms.  The board establishes management-related policies, makes decisions on major association issues, and generally oversees the association’s activities – carried out mainly through board committees.

Being a director is a very rewarding experience.  You have a direct say in how we carry out CGJA’s mission to promote, preserve, and support the grand jury system through training, education, and outreach.  And you work with a group of wonderful, committed people from all over the state.

When considering candidacy, it is important to understand the requirements. A director (1) must be a voting CGJA member on July 31, 2021 and throughout the term, and (2) must reside in the region represented.  It is desirable to have had some experience with CGJA or its chapters (e.g., committee membership, chapter officer).  To learn more, please check Director Responsibilities.

To find out more, read the current meeting agenda and minutes of past board meetings.  These are available on the About CGJA page of our website:  If interested in running, attend a board meeting held via Zoom or telephone on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Linkages to the meeting are at the top of the current meeting agenda.

The CGJA Nominations-Elections Committee (NEC) oversees the nomination and election of directors. Its primary duty is to seek out the most competent CGJA members to serve as directors.
