Committee’s Mission

The Mission of the Regional Fellowship Committee is to promote, foster, and create a permanent and continuing outlet for collegiality, networking, and social interaction among CCA Fellows. Fellows in each region are empowered to build their own programs suited to the Fellows of the region.

Each Regional Fellowship group shall be committed to the promotion of the CCA within the region, in order to expand local understanding of the work of the College within the profession and attract qualified new and diverse membership. Fostering small group interaction will provide the opportunity for Fellows to become more actively involved with the CCA, exchange ideas and best practices, and become familiar with their local cohorts.

To this end, each region will hold two meetings a year, to be led and organized by the Regional Coordinators.
