MCLE Spectacular 2019

The 25th Annual MCLE Spectacular will take place on November 22, 2019 from 8am–5pm at the Walnut Creek Marriott.

Welcome to the 25th Annual MCLE Spectacular.
PROGRAM MATERIALS ARE AVAILABLE NOW.

This will be our Silver Anniversary Celebration. The very first SPEC was in 1995 and the very first speaker was the then Honorable James J. Marchiano, a full day package was $95 and yes, we are still at the Walnut Creek Marriott. How time flies!

This Silver Anniversary edition will bring with it some “day of” surprises and a brand-new way to register. We have been working with our data management provider to create an integrated online registration format.

Registration will be Online Only! YES! Finally, you can do it yourself and pay directly by credit card!

No more paper brochures or faxing for you and no more enormous, scary spreadsheets for us! In order to get the Member pricing you will need to login to your CCCBA member profile. Let us know if you need help with your password.

Please have a look at our Online Brochure for program details, speaker information and pricing.

Regular registration is closed, but there is some availability for Walk-in / Same Day registration. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Anne K. Wolf, CCCBA’s Education & Events Director at 925-370-2540 or [email protected]
