Donation Dues Model Continues Through 2022: JOIN US!

As our community moves forward gingerly in the face of an uncertain pandemic, back-logged courts, and families wondering how to connect when our young kids are still unvaccinated, SCCTLA is here to help bring us back together. How do we keep our courtroom skills sharp when so many of our cases are being delayed or litigated on ZOOM? How do we network and build professional ties with limited social opportunities and even fewer chance encounters? How do we move forward?

We get it. At yesterday’s Board meeting, the SCCTLA board grappled with these questions, as we considered how to grow and support our membership, while still raising enough money to support the programming that has made SCCTLA an integral part of the Santa Cruz County trial community for over 30 years–signature events like Mock Trial, Cookie Court and the Elbow Rub. Once again, we decided to leave your dues up to you.

Some folks are thriving as the economy rebounds. Others are struggling, as we face unprecedented personal and professional challenges. Wherever you fall on that spectrum, we are here for you.

This year, like last year, we will have a donation-based membership model, with suggested donations depending on where you’re at in your career. But, it’s also okay to donate less. Or more. Or nothing. The most important thing is that we stick together and support each other. So, please join us!

We’re expecting Mock Trial and Cookie Court to be nearly back to “normal” this year, with in-person programming, and we are already planning MCLEs that bring you fresh content and an opportunity to connect. This year’s Elbow Rub will be better than ever, with a new, family-friendly venue and delicious, local food. We’ll finally get a chance to honor Judge Heather Morse.

Membership runs from January 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022. For those of you who donate dues, you’ll have the option of applying your donation toward event fees. Join or renew your membership now!
