Aside from the benefits that you receive as a member of the ABA, the Judicial Division and CASA, as a CASA member you will have access to the Council's many Committees which provide members a lively and open forum for analysis, debate and education. Committees also allow you to discuss common and diverse interests and goals. Serving on a committee is also an excellent way in which to move into a leadership position in CASA, if you choose to do so.
CASA Committees include:
- Education Committee: Susan Dautel and Cliffie Wesson, Co-Chairs
- Long Range Planning Committee: Richard Schickele, Chair
- Nominating Committee: Frank Gibbard, Chair
- CASA Chronicles: Elizabeth Ryan, Editor
- Membership: Jeremiah Morgan, Chair
CASA members who serve on one or more committees not only contribute to the ongoing success of the organization, but they also meet and get to know colleagues from around the country, which is one of the principal benefits of becoming active in CASA. Committee service is also easy and does not involve any significant expense to either you or your court, because virtually all committee work is accomplished via email and/or telephone conference calls. CASA encourages its members to become involved and to bring to the attention of these Committees their ideas and concerns so that the objectives and interests of all members can be heard, understood and incorporated into CASA proposals, projects and initiatives
If you would like to volunteer to serve on a committee contact the committee chair or CASA staff.
