The premier workshop of its kind, CTA’s Summer Institute takes place on the conference grounds of UCLA’s De Neve Plaza and Sunset Village.  Offering sessions in a variety of areas that assist chapter leaders in the day-to-day representation of their members, this week-long event will feature hands-on activities to hone the skills needed to meet the challenges of the coming year.

The Summer Institute offers nine strands or tracks of instruction that span the entire week (Sunday to Thursday) and two that are two-and-a-half days (running either Sunday through Tuesday, or Tuesday through Thursday).

Participants register for the track of their choice. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Some strands/tracks fill up quickly, so it is important to register as early as possible. You may be wait-listed if your first choice is not available at registration. You will be given the opportunity to register for other available strands/tracks while you are wait-listed for your first choice.
