The first CBA/DBA Section Summit was held in November of 2016, and the second in May of 2017. There was great response and participation from all of the Sections. The ideas generated at the Summits helped launch the creation of the Best Practices Playbook.

Please use this Playbook Resource Page to help council members and officers navigate their way through different responsibilities and requirements of all of the law sections of the CBA and DBA. On this page, each chapter of the playbook has a new or additional resource to help further understanding and answer any outlying questions.

Please contact Amy Sreenen at with any other questions or if you need further training.
