CHAPTERS

To better serve our Association's membership, the California Applicants' Attorneys Association is organized into 18 local chapters. The chapters provide regular opportunities to meet continuing education requirements and information on the latest in California's workers' compensation industry. Our chapters meet on a monthly basis and are always accepting new members. Current members can click the chapter name to view officers, meeting details, and e-communities.
