Membership in the City Clerks Association of California (CCAC) provides members with reduced registration fees to the City Clerks Annual Conference, the annual New Law and Elections Seminar sponsored by the League of California Cities and various other training opportunities. In addition, scholarship opportunities are available for members to offset education costs.

CCAC consists of 16 geographical regions. Membership in one of these regions is automatic upon payment of dues.
