"I was just driving around town and I figured I needed a way to raise money to attend my ASB leadership conference in March, so I saw the County Junction window paintings up, and I said, 'Hey, why not?'" said Foynes. "It was a genius idea right in front of my face."

A Note from the President
Welcome student leaders and advisors! I am thrilled to connect with you through our newly designed website and to share valuable resources and information for an enriched school year. Throughout the year CASL has numerous events, information and tools created with student leaders in mind. From our Annual State Conference to material on Leadership Development Days and R.S.V.P. trainings, any questions you may have about CASL can be answered here. We are anxious to serve you! Features on this website that are a must see include the Meet the Board tab, where you can get to know the 2013- 2014 CASL Board, the Resources tab, which exhibits workshop handouts as well as voting material and icebreaker resources, and of course, you cannot close this link without viewing the cornucopia of information on the Annual CASL State Conference coming up this April at the Ontario Convention Center from March 27th through the 31st. On behalf of the CASL State Board, thank you for your support, dedication to leadership, and desire to make the world a better place. Enjoy!
Where did CASL Come from?
The California Association of Student Leaders (CASL) is an outgrowth of the work of its sister organization, the California Association of Directors of Activities (CADA). In 1996, the National Association of Student Councils (NASC) saw a need for a board of student leaders in the state of California, and asked CADA to take the lead on its formation. Since then, the two organizations have supported each other in their shared mission to develop student leaders in schools around California and beyond!
Your Roadmap to Leadership Success
The California Association of Student Leaders is proud to welcome you to our new, student-designed website. We invite you to explore the site and check out all the stops our State Board has laid out for your leadership adventure—from the Road Map to Improved School Climate and Culture, to the workshop downloadables in the Resources section and fundraising ideas in the State Conference section, we think you'll find everything you need to embark on your leadership journey... but if you don't, we want to help you find what you're looking for! Check out the Meet the Board page to see our photos and biographies, then send us an email asking for more tips on getting to your leadership destination. The students of the CASL State Board are expert leaders—we go through rigorous, boot-camp style training each summer in order to be the best resource possible for student leaders all over California.
