Join CAC professionals from across the state for the inaugural Leadership Conference designed for Executive Directors, Program Directors, and other supervisory staff. This leadership event is uniquely positioned to bring together CAC leaders of all levels creating a dynamic platform for information gathering and idea sharing on management strategies.

Attendees will experience a diverse training platform with plenary sessions, invitational presentations, panels, and workshops addressing topics from managerial best practices, hiring for longevity, and accountability techniques to retention strategies and structuring for center growth.

While the final agenda will be tailored to the registered participants, the vision for the conference is for general sessions to address overarching topics that are pertinent to all managers and breakout tracks to address topics specific to management level including first-time managers, mid-level managers, and executive-level managers.
