CCAC Annual Conference

Every April, the current CCAC President hosts the annual CCAC conference. The conference is an opportunity for California Clerks to learn new things, receive election and legislative updates, build networks with other Clerks, volunteer (a variety of conference volunteer opportunities are available), earn certification points, and have fun! Pre-conference sessions, usually an Advanced Academy and/or an Athenian Dialogue, are held the day before the conference at an additional fee that includes lunch. Conference registration includes all sessions and materials, several meals (breakfast and lunch), and one ticket to the annual President's banquet on Thursday evening.  An optional all-conference event is usually held on Wednesday evening. Hotel registration is discounted at a group rate, plus applicable taxes. Those completing the entire conference will receive experience and/or continuing education points towards IIMC certification (CMC or MMC).  Attendance at all sessions is mandatory to receive certification credit.

Please join us for the 47th Annual City Clerks Association of California conference in beautiful Burlingame, California, on the Peninsula, in San Mateo County. The County’s tag line is ‘All of California in one County’. We are just 16½ miles south of San Francisco and just a few minutes from the San Francisco International Airport. The windows from the hotel overlook the Bay, and we are a short drive away from the mountains, redwoods, ocean, and all of Silicon Valley.

The conference theme is “Powerful Partnerships” and I invite you to join us as we explore and gain wisdom and skills in how we can be the partner that our organizations and community rely on to deliver true transparency and access to local government services. We will build on our own partnerships as clerk colleagues and find we are more powerful from networking together.

The Conference Committee has done an extraordinary job to bring you a premier conference with professional key note general sessions to open and close the conference, and deep learning opportunities on Thursday with concurrent tracks on technical skills and leadership. Please consider also attending the pre-conference Advanced Academy or Athenian Dialogue on Tuesday before the conference to make your learning a truly personal and enriching experience. 

Thank you for your dedication to the municipal clerk profession and to your continued education. I hope you join us in Burlingame!  

Very truly yours,

Patrice M. Olds, MMC

President, City Clerks Association of California
