Registration Now Open for CSAC’s 123rd Annual Meeting
Registration is now open for CSAC’s 123rd Annual Meeting, scheduled for November 28 through December 1 in Sacramento County. CSAC staff is busy planning a comprehensive conference agenda that focuses on many of the current issues of importance to counties.
The theme for the 2017 Annual Meeting is “Sharing the Vision,” reflecting the need and desire for California’s 58 counties to work together in order to shape the future of California.
“The Golden State has a vibrant economy that provides jobs and homes while also giving each resident the opportunity to reach their potential. Together we can create public policy that reflects the diversity of our 58 counties and helps us achieve our common goals,” said CSAC President and Alameda County Supervisor Keith Carson. “The CSAC Annual Meeting will provide you the tools and information you will need for the work ahead. This is our chance to work together on a shared vision.”
Workshops will spotlight important issues that matter to counties including reducing homelessness and the legalization of cannabis.We will also examine the recent changes Proposition 57 makes in how we treat offenders and the services counties can offer to reduce recidivism. Our conference will have also a discussion about the national political scene and how the changing political landscape in Washington, D.C. has and will impact California and each of our 58 Counties.
CSAC is also putting together a strong lineup of keynote speakers that will soon be unveiled.
The week will kick off with the sixth Annual CSAC Innovation Summit, scheduled for the morning of Tuesday, November 28. This year the summit will focus on “Charting the Course for State-County Innovation and Partnership.” The three-hour workshop will feature a broad panel of State leaders in a robust dialogue about innovation, successful partnerships with counties, and what lies ahead in the sea of policy changes.
The conference also provides an opportunity for input from county officials through the Association’s Board of Directors and five policy committee meetings. ”Our Annual Meeting will keep you informed, engaged and enlightened, but we also want to hear from you,” Supervisor Carson said.
