The California Leadership Academy (CLA) is a learning community made up of local community college representatives. The primary goal of the CLA is for participants to develop advanced leadership skills, gain knowledge about the history and importance of unionism, and learn more about our important statewide organizations. Graduates of the CLA have become board members, local leaders, statewide leaders, and influential faculty advocates in California. CLA participants have the unique opportunity to learn from CCA leaders, CCA staff and each other.
