ObjectiveThis session provides proven lessons in effective, positive leadership.
DescriptionIn 1948, the United States Department of the Army developed a publication titled, "Leadership" (Field Manual 22-10). It was a culmination of literally hundreds of years of organizational leadership knowledge. The manual was first published in 1951 after several years of review. The original manual (FM 22-10) and its concepts have been used ever since, developed into further military, government, and civilian policies and doctrines. The concepts provided in the "11 Principles of Leadership" are timeless and apply to any organization that wants to better itself and its people. CBLTAC's adaptation of "The 11 Principles of Leadership" is a motivational, inspirational, and educational seminar about leadership and foundational concepts of how we can all be the best we can be. It is full of encouraging quotes about guidance and authority in an everchanging world. This class will provide leaders and subordinates alike with valuable tools they can use every day to apply or provide purpose, motivation, and direction to the daily activities and their long-term goals.

ObjectiveOfficial Launch: CalCUPA has developed a new Learning Management System (LMS) for its members to continue to receive CUPA Program education. Successful completion of course materials and quizzes will award members CEUs that can be used to maintain a variety of certifications. We will review this new system/tool together during this Session.
DescriptionOver the years, we at calcupa.org have created several different methods of providing training for members to learn and earn CEUs. We've hosted a video library and over 200 videos from our 2 years of virtual conferences. We have tried several methods of having users verify they have watched the videos in an effort to maintain our accreditation with the State. In order to continue to improve CUPA Program Training to our members, we are moving forward with the next step in our training evolution to provide members with a full Learning Management System (LMS) training experience. This will allow Course attendees to be provided a variety of types of information including documents and videos. Successful training will be verified with the use of quizzes which must be passed in order to earn CEUs. We believe this will offer a further validation of the training experience for our members and continue to justify the awarding of CEUs for completed training. In this Session, we will walk through the process of accessing LMS Courses at calcupa.org and demonstrating some of the features and functions of the material and most importantly, how to meet the criteria for earning CEUs.
