CSEA's 92nd Annual Conference will be held at the Sacramento Convention Center July 29 - Aug. 2, 2018 with pre-conference activities beginning on Sunday, July 28. Representing their local chapters back home, delegates will gather from all across California. They will vote on resolutions, adopt a budget, present major awards and set the course for the year ahead. In all, more than 2,000 delegates, leaders, staff and guests are expected to attend CSEA's biggest event of the year.
In addition to the formally scheduled events, the conference presents members with a unique opportunity to listen and exchange ideas, share problems and solutions, and network with colleagues from around the state.
Delegates will debate and vote on resolutions, which are formally submitted proposals, often written by local chapters, which determine policies and priorities for the union. Delegates will review the association’s budget to ensure members’ dues dollars are spent appropriately and with the greatest return to members. The next CSEA budget does not go forward until these members approve it with a majority vote.
CSEA will honor its most outstanding members throughout the week with the presentation of several awards, including Life Member and Honor Roll, Members of the Year, Activist of the Year, Communication Awards, Wally Blice (political action), Circle of Stars (Victory Club growth), Humanitarian of the Year and Membership Unity Program (chapter organizing).
One of the goals of conference is to provide quality training focused on specific job skills; common issues impacting classified employees; and how to be more involved union activists. Education Days offers a wide selection of workshops, seminars and forums about issues that impact classified employees and education.
