Event description

The Spring Conference is held in April and highlights advocacy. While we wish that politics did not play a role in education, we know that having effective advocacy in Sacramento, a well-informed membership, and local Boards of Trustees who support our faculty and students are critical to our success. At this conference, we also highlight our “We Honor Ours” (WHO) Awards winners. This is a special program which honors our own local and state union leaders.

Please note: Delegates and Building Strong Locals (BSL) Academy participants must attend all sessions to be eligible for reimbursement.

DELEGATES
Each chapter is allotted a specific number of paid delegates based on chapter membership. Chapter leaders may verify the number of chapter delegates with Bonita Lovell, Field Services Specialist, at (916) 288-4921 or blovell@cta.org. Contact your local chapter leaders if you would like to be a conference delegate.

NON-DELEGATE PARTICIPATION/INCENTIVE GRANTS
Pursuant to Standing Rule 2-2, … CCA will reimburse the higher number of four participants at CCA conferences or the number of delegates allocated to the chapter as specified in the Bylaws. If a chapter is allocated less than four delegates, the remaining participants will attend as non-delegates. For non-delegates not covered by CCA Standing Rules, registration fee is $300.

UNIVERSITY CREDIT
All CCA conferences have been designed to meet educational requirements approved for University Credit through CSU, Chico Regional & Continuing Education. University Credit is available to those attending the CCA Spring Conference. Information regarding University Credit and registration forms are available online at http://rce.csuchico.edu/teachers/cta.

CCA HOMELESS INITIATIVE
CCA’s Homeless Initiative is supporting Project Dignity, a charity that serves people who are homeless.  These people include our students – Project Dignity has helped community college students register for classes, has paid for books, and has provided food and housing. Project Dignity can ONLY use checks, cash, and grocery store gift cards. They cannot use clothing, bedding, pet food, or other bulky items, because the families they serve move quite often and by necessity travel light. We know that community college faculty have big hearts for those in need.  Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated by these families.

DEPENDENT CARE REIMBURSEMENT
Dependent care reimbursement will be available per CCA policy and guidelines.

QUESTIONS
If you have any questions contact Conference Registrar, Mary Ann Lapuz-Gacutan, at (650) 552-5165 or CCAconference@cta.org.
