    Why Seek Mentorship In GCCA?

    GCCA is the premier forum for court management and leadership in Georgia.  Our organization includes the most diverse court leaders in the state from all disciplines within the field of court administration.  GCCA retains more than 200 active members across the state who work for every class of court, both general and limited jurisdiction.

    What is Mentoring?

    Mentoring is a partnership between an experienced GCCA member (the Mentor) and a GCCA member in good standing (the Mentee) who desires additional professional knowledge, expertise or guidance. The partnership is based on trust, respect, confidentiality and a commitment to the administration of justice. Through regular and timely contact, the Mentor will guide and support while answering questions, providing referrals, and sharing experiences and opportunities for growth with the Mentee.
