2019 Leadership Academy Application
CAOC's Leadership Academy will train CAOC members who are interested in developing their leadership roles within CAOC. Volunteers are critical to CAOC's success and CAOC is dedicated to ensuring high levels of leadership among its members, and, in particular, among those who are underrepresented within the association. The purpose of the Leadership Academy, an initiative of CAOC's Diversity Committee, is to give CAOC members the skills and techniques needed to make them effective leaders in CAOC, their professional settings and in their communities. The Leadership Academy will select only 30 plaintiff trial lawyers representing various backgrounds and practice areas to attend both 2-day sessions. Tuition is $350.
