2019 Staff Workshop

2019 Staff Workshop

Join CALAFCO and our host, Santa Clara LAFCo, in San Jose for the 2019 Staff Workshop. We will gather at the Holiday Inn Silicon Valley in San Jose from April 10 through 12 for an invaluable educational and networking opportunity. 

The program is set and the Mobile Workshop tells the tale of two valleys. You will not want to miss this unique educational and networking opportunity. 

Workshop registration is now closed.  Deadline to register was March 26, 2019.

The venue is the Holiday Inn Silicon Valley in San Jose. The cutoff date for the special CALAFCO rates has passed. Reservations may still be available. 

The program is really looking good! Session topics and speakers are now finalized and ready to engage you in some very stimulating and provocative conversations about all that is LAFCo these days.  You can download the final Workshop Program to see session topics and networking events being planned. In addition to the Wednesday afternoon roundtables for legal counsel, clerks and EOs/Analysts, there will be a special all-hands roundtable Thursday afternoon. The mobile workshop will be a Tale of Two Valleys. You will tour two unique San Jose environs and learn how the preservation of open space and ag lands (Coyote Valley) and the revitalization of the downtown (Silicon Valley) go hand in hand in building climate and economic resilience.
