Strong leaders in strategic positions are key to CalCPA’s continued success.

Participants will grow as volunteer and business leaders as they focus on improving leadership behavior, as well as critical thinking and management skills.

*NOTE: An optional 6th day is available to those who wish to participate in the Leadership Institute graduation ceremony conducted at the CalCPA Council Meeting in Sacramento. Participation is encouraged, but not required.

CalCPA and the CalCPA Education Foundation underwrite the costs of the program except for a small administrative fee of $249 that is responsibility of the individual participant. Travel expenses are also the responsibility of the attendee.
