All of its current members are public universities, and upon UC San Diego's departure on July 1, 2020, all are members of the California State University system.[2]

It was founded in December 1938 and began competition in 1939. The commissioner of the CCAA is Mitch Cox. CCAA offices are located in Chico, California.[3] The CCAA is the most successful conference in NCAA Division II, as its former and current members have won 153 National Championships.[4]
