A Message from our President
Our 54th annual conference in Sacramento was a success. We had over 275 registered attendees and a large number of volunteers and exhibitors to add to that number. A special thank you to the many volunteers from NorCal under the leadership of Sheri Farinha and the CAL-Ed Board who worked hard to make sure the conference was a success.
We had several vacant positions to fill on the board when we went into the conference this year. I am pleased to report that we have a FULL Board with newly elected individuals! I would like to welcome the following:
Area I: Razi Zachary
Area V: Jennifer Burnett*
Area VII: Daria Smith
2015 Conference Chair: Mallorie Evans
And … last but not least, we now have a President-Elect! Stephanie Johnson will become the President of CAL-ED at the General Membership Meeting at the 2015 Conference. Stephanie has been the Area V Representative for many years. Her move to the President-Elect position opened up the Area V position which Jennifer Burnett will now fill.
Congratulations to our newly elected board!
Tentatively, our 55th Annual conference will be held in Long Beach. We will wait for Mallorie Evans, our newly elected Conference Chair to secure the location and our conference theme. Be sure to come back to the website often for updates on the next conference!
We hope you will utilize our website to get new information as it comes up. We will be posting pictures from the 2014 conference in addition to other information pertinent to CAL-ED business. Additionally, more and more school districts or employees are informing CAL-ED of job vacancies in their districts. Your membership to our organization allows you to access our ONLINE FORUM where you can post questions, and seek information among other things.
