SRN II Seminar:                                  

CCSO is currently accepting confirmation to attend the upcoming SRN II Seminar on Saturday 2/9/2019 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Sacramento. Please contact the CCSO office 209.838.2940 to confirm your attendance ASAP. CCSO encourages all chapters to be represented at this event. The seminar will be very beneficial and provide insight regarding issues facing the health care community.

Presidents’ Round Table:

This year, one of the CCSO State President’s goals is to establish a presidents’ round table to discuss current issues, strategize for the future, and to collaborate on various tasks and projects. If you are a current chapter president and are interested in attending, please contact the office.

Correctional Legal Service (CLS):

The Correctional Legal Service (CLS) is projected to start in February 2019 and will be offered to all CDCR, DSH, and PIA employees. The monthly dues are $67 and will provide a strong legal defense when employees are faced with adverse action. CCSO has an outstanding reputation for providing the best legal defense for its members and will now share that benefit with CLS members.

Supervisor Time Bank Campaign:

CCSO is ready to kick off its STB campaigning, with the goal of achieving 4,000 hours for our supervisors.  The time bank is funded by member donations.   Last year was such a success, as such CCSO would like to continue with the same donation incentives. Look for the incentive break down in the Winter Newsletter.
