2021 CCBSA Annual Conference

The annual business meeting and conference is held each year alongside the California State Association of Counties annual meeting. While the conference location oscillates between northern and southern California, the week-long event is always teeming with thought-provoking speakers, workshops that tackle topical issues, and networking opportunities.

The County of Monterey and your Conference Planning Committee has organized an outstanding conference for CCBSA focused on "Resilience and Reinvention." Conference sessions will be held November 30 – December 3, 2021.

There will be informative workshops to attend, great lineup of speakers and networking opportunities with your colleagues in beautiful Monterey County! The CCBSA sessions will be held at the Portola Hotel, with CSAC events to be held at the adjacent Monterey Marriott and the Monterey Conference Center.

Valerie Ralph, our host Clerk and her staff and the CCBSA Conference Planning Committee have put together a fantastic conference that will leave you energized and inspired. Clerks will gain insight into navigating this ongoing state of vulnerability and regain some balance and energy by being adaptive and leave with the ability to bounce back from, and work through challenging circumstances or events. While at the conference, test your knowledge of California and our 58 counties by taking the Clerks’ Quiz! It will be held in-person at this year’s conference.
