CCSO Annual Conference:
This year’s annual conference was a huge success and we have received an incredible amount of positive feedback. Many members and Chapter Presidents have stated they feel strongly about the direction CCSO is heading and look forward to the future. CDCR Secretary Ralph Diaz gave an excellent speech and spent time answering all of our questions. He recently contacted President Gonzales to follow through on commitments he made at the conference. Thank you to everyone who attended and made our conference a memorable event!

Help us share information and items of interest with all of our members.
Attorney Brett Sherman of Goyette & Associates recently received the below positive review from one of our members. The member had received a 5% reduction for 6 months, which was withdrawn after his Skelly hearing.
“Brett, I can’t thank you enough for that Skelly hearing performance. You made this process as easy as possible.”
