On June 1, 2017 approximately 49 GJAOC members and guests attended a luncheon where the Honorable Jeannie M. Joseph was our speaker. She gave a talk entitled: “Federal Grand Jury vs. The State Grand Jury”. We learned a lot of interesting facts about the Federal Grand Jury system that stand in contrast to the California Grand Jury system. For example: Federal Grand Juries are not comprised of volunteers. Their panels are made up of voters who have received a jury summons.
At the same event, the GJAOC bid farewell to our board member and friend, Helen Alberts, most recently our membership coordinator. Below are some photos from the event.
