Please note: There are no longer hotel rooms available at the state rate for CALCASA's Statewide Conference. Travel scholarships are still available, however, CALCASA can only reimburse for lodging up to the state rate. The remainder would need to be covered by the applicant through a funding source other than Cal OES.
CALCASA’s 2017 Statewide Conference will be held on August 7-10, 2017 at the DoubleTree by Hilton located at 2001 Point West Way in Sacramento. This year’s theme is “Transformative Conversations: Think Differently to End Sexual Assault.” Pre-conference events will be held on August 7-8, 2017 and the Statewide Conference will held on August 9-10, 2017.
