The curriculum is being worked on - we will have several subject matter expert guest speakers and are assembling a great team of core and guest trainers. Topics scheduled to be offered include: Clerks & litigation; Maximizing generational diversity; Strategic planning; Social media; Negotiations; and Change management to name a few.

Please be sure to check the schedule posted online for Academy start and finish times and plan your travel accordingly. You must be present for all sessions to earn your certificate for all 20 hours/10 points. There is no partial credit given and no “make-up” allowance.


This year we will hold both Academy sessions at the Kellogg West Conference Center and Hotel, located at 3801 West Temple Avenue, Bldg. 76, Pomona.  Conveniently located near the Ontario airport, there is shuttle service to and from the airport through Super Shuttle (for a fee). Reservations for transportation are required. Contact Super Shuttle directly to make your reservations at [email protected] or by calling 800-258-3826 – do not use the hotel to make these reservations as they are not connected. If you are driving, the hotel’s website has directions. Guest rooms are comfortable with a host of amenities. Our session training rooms are equally inviting and comfortable.

If you have any questions about the Academy or registration after visiting the site, please contact me at 916-850-9271 or [email protected]. I look forward to seeing you there in March!
