The Conference of California Bar Associations (CCBA) is California's foremost attorney-run legislative body providing unparalleled opportunities to create and change California law. In recent years, over 50% of CCBA-sponsored bills have become California Law. BASF's Delegation to the CCBA is one of the largest and most successful.

This program will present a road map for effecting legislative change through the CCBA, and provide some real world examples of recent Delegation successes. Led by longtime BASF Delegation members, this presentation will help you learn to:

1. Identify a problem that needs a legislative solution,
2. Research and draft an amendment to California law as proposed legislation,
3. Draft a concise statement of reasons in support of the bill, and
4. Defend and re-draft the bill during the legislative process.
