For more than 30 years, the Network has hosted and convened a conference for its members and other guests. In 2013, the Network and the California Alternative Payment Program Association (CAPPA) have joined together to offer the first annual joint conference. This unique conference, consisting of workshops, plenary sessions, informal conversations, reunions, and time for relaxation and fun will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Sacramento. The conference provides the perfect opportunity for Resource and Referral and Alternative Payment program staff across California to come together to share experiences, challenges, and new ideas; and to connect with more than 400 colleagues from diverse agencies, cities, and counties.
On behalf of the Network and CAPPA, thank you to all who participated in the first joint conference and for helping to make it a major success!
A huge thank you to our generous Conference sponsors! View a list of our contributors here.
Please save the date for the 2014 Joint Annual Conference on September 17-19, 2014 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Sacramento.
