Great Speakers, Breakout Sessions, and Lots More!!!!

Speaker Program: A variety of speakers and breakout sessions in store for attendees.

Judy Acosta, Ventura County Superintendent of Schools

You won't want to miss the annual 1996 CEDPA Conference in Palm Springs. We have lots of good things in store for you. Here are some of the reasons why.

  1. We have lined up three "main" speakers who will be presenting information that is timely and pertinent to all of us.
  2. The breakout sessions are GREAT. We've been very fortunate in having some great volunteers this year. You will have difficulty in making a choice on which ones to attend.
  3. The vendor show promises to be better than ever with some really good door prizes.
  4. The ever-popular Internet Room is back with the latest and greatest.
  5. The CEDPA Board worked hard on selecting a menu for you that will please and delight one and all.
  6. CASUAL DRESS-leave those business suits, ties, dresses at home.
  7. For the first time ever--a golf tournament following the close of the Conference. Be sure and sign up and miss the Friday afternoon traffic rush.

All of this will be taking place in a hotel that is delightful and gracious--the Palm Springs Marquis, Crowne Plaza Resort, located in the heart of Palm Springs, within walking distance of shops for anything that you forgot to bring, great restaurants for your dining pleasure, and even a Street Fair on Thursday evening. Park your car and forget it until you're ready to go home. I can't think of a better place to fill my head with knowledge during the day, and to relax during the evening hours.

I look forward to seeing you in October. Check your Conference Announcement for a complete schedule of breakout sessions. You'll find lots of sessions that will be of interest and value to you. If you have misplaced your announcement, or did not receive one, contact any of the Board members listed on page 2 of this publication and we will see that one is sent to you immediately.
