Step 1: Register
This is the special members-only Eventbrite site for registration. This is where our members can register staff, board members/local electeds, community advisory committee members, local NGOs, and others they would like to invite/sponsor. You can register several members of your team at once – just add the name, affiliation, and email for each person on your invite list. Each CCA has a unique code to use at checkout – your attendance is complimentary. Alternatively, you can just pay with credit card. Please reach out to Jackson McDonough at email@example.com if you need your CCA’s registration code.

* Registration under this a la carte item is for local elected and appointed CCA oversight board/commission members who just want to come for the special lunch on May 19. NOTE: The luncheon is already included for officials that are registered for the entire event. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to check a board or commission member’s registration status.
Important: Non-members will have a different registration site so please don’t share the Member-only Eventbrite link outside your CCA. We are opening registration to members first to ensure members are given first dibs on registration and discounted hotel rooms. CalCCA will invite partners and speakers to register soon. We may open the 2023 conference to a wider audience closer to the event date if space permits.
