CETPA will follow-up last year’s successful debut of the Spring Mini-Conference, by returning to the same venue and staying with the same program format.  The Spring Mini-Conference is structured as a one-day event focused solely upon the concepts for, plus planning and execution of two subjects crucial to the on-going success of K-12 technology practitioners.  For 2003, the strands are:

  • ‘Doing More With Less’ – There is little need to extol the reasons for this topic strand.  The Governor’s office continues to provide the impetus for all of public education to continue those efforts to get the most out of what resources are provided  -- this time ‘in spades’. We will concentrate on tools and techniques to be more efficient and more effective.
  • ‘Video Networking – Soup to Nuts’ – Attendees of the 2002 CETPA Conference identified this as a much needed focus area.

The Mini-Conference will present general discussions followed by ‘drill down’ sessions with ‘how to’ information.  Breakouts sessions will concentrate on one or the other of the two topics, so it may be to your advantage to have multiple persons representing your organization.  A limited number of vendors with products and services germane to the presentations will be at hand.

The CETPA Board is committed to providing meaningful training for CETPA members and colleagues.  In recognition of the scrutiny that the budget crisis places upon all out-of-office activity, CETPA will cut the cost of this event.  Additional announcements and registration forms will be available at this website as soon as details can be worked out.

The 2003 Spring Mini Conference is scheduled for Thursday May 1.  The CSU Chancellor’s Office is located at 401 Golden Shore in Long Beach, 90802-4210.


ANNOUNCEMENTS will be mailed to recipients of CEDPA's DataBus newsletter as well as all public school district and county superintendents and technology coordinators in California in the April edition.

Please consider setting aside May 1  to attend this event. 

Additional announcements and information about the  conference will be available here as they become available.
