July 31- August 5, 2011

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 three strands of instruction that span the entire week (Sunday to Friday) and three that are two-and-a-half days (running either Sunday through Tuesday, or Wednesday through Friday).

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 waitlisted 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 waitlisted for your first choice.


If you are registering more than one person, please make sure you have all the required
information before you begin.
