Conference Updates and Highlights

The 6th annual Network/CAPPA Conference occurs Wednesday, October 17th through Friday, October 19th at the DoubleTree Hotel in Sacramento. 

Over the course of our three-day conference, you'll have many learning and networking opportunities. How much you learn and who you meet is in your hands!  We encourage you to not only attend the keynotes and workshop sessions but also seize this opportunity to network with your colleagues from around the state. 


Conference Registration:
Conference registration will be held in the Grand Ballroom Foyer and begins on October 17th at 11:00 a.m.  When you enter the hotel, make a left and go past the restaurant on your right.  Continue down a hallway until it stops.  Make a right and you'll see the Network and CAPPA staff ready to provide you with your name tag, program and this year's tote bag.


To start the conference, there are two sets of workshops on Wednesday afternoon (1:30 - 3:00 and 3:30 - 5:00) with many workshops from which to choose.  


Following the workshops, there will be a Welcome Reception (optional activity) followed by the Welcome Dinner from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.  There are no other conference activities planned after the dinner session so get some rest and be ready for a full day starting with a breakfast keynote at 8:00 a.m. Thursday.
