Network and CAPPA Joint Annual
 Conference 2017

 October 18-20, 2017
 DoubleTree Hotel Sacramento
 Sacramento, CA

The California Resource & Referral Network (Network) and the California Alternative Payment Program Association (CAPPA) have joined together to, plan, develop and deliver the Joint 2017 Annual Conference.

This conference provides a unique opportunity for staff to come together to discuss and share common issues, successes and challenges as well as time for each of us to get to know our colleagues and renew friendships. This conference is different from the variety of meetings and conferences related to our work, for this conference is by, for, and about the work we do in R&R and APP.

This year's Annual Conference includes a variety of workshops to meet the needs of staff working with parents; staff providing training and technical assistance to child care providers; program staff-supervisors; managers and directors.

We hope you can join us!
