The CCCAOE Policy Summit is a two-day professional development and networking event where career education leaders will learn about the state’s legislative process, hear from experts on current trends in career technical education and workforce development, and engage directly with policymakers. CCCAOE, in partnership with W Strategies LLC, will provide hands-on training on the basics of the California Legislature, the state budget process, and information on the impacts of recently enacted legislation. Participants will also have the opportunity to dialogue with legislators and their staff during a full day of meetings. All you have to do is travel to Sacramento and be willing to learn about the legislative process and the impact it has on CTE and your campuses.
