Registration is now open for remote CGJA Report Writing Workshops (using Zoom)

Four multi-county workshops will be offered this fall and early winter (dates and times shown below), with more to be added in the spring for counties that will be impaneling their juries in January of 2021 (dates to be determined). Class size will be limited to 20 participants per workshop – pre-registration is required. The workshops will be presented over two half-days using Zoom. Jurors will need to attend from a computer with a camera and microphone and have a good internet connection.

Report Writing Workshop Content

CGJA conducts report writing workshops to expand on the information presented at the regular grand jury training seminars. These workshops provide in-depth coverage of such topics as the content of reports; facts, findings, and recommendations; tips on how to use compelling language; reviewing and editing reports; conducting exit interviews to verify findings; and the process and requirements for the approval and release of individual final reports. These workshops provide helpful tools enabling grand juries to improve the quality, readability, accuracy, and effectiveness of their reports. Hands-on exercises will provide practice in developing effective findings and recommendations.

The cost for the workshop is $50 per person or $900 per grand jury for remote training, and $1,200 per county for in-person training. The fees include a workshop training manual for each attendee.
