C.A.S.H. 33rd Annual Conference on School Facilities


February 20-22, 2012 

Sacramento Convention Center and Hyatt Regency

This year’s conference will provide the latest about current state and federal funding opportunities, the status and implications of new laws and regulations, industry trends, the status of school maintenance funding programs, planning, and fiscal management in this still uncertain economic environment. The conference will provide solutions to your challenges making it a unique experience for each attendee.

Under the leadership of Joe Dixon, Chair of the C.A.S.H. Annual Conference Planning Committee and C.A.S.H. Vice Chair, the Committee has developed a comprehensive and timely series of topics and expert speakers. In addition to the opportunity to sharpen and update your knowledge of key policies and programs, this conference will provide attendees with opportunities to share information with colleagues, as well as network with key state agency representatives and legislative staff.

This year you will notice a new look to the cover artwork for the conference. As part of the Planning  Committee Process, Joe Dixon asked the committee to design a branded theme and artwork that will be used year-to-year. Several architectural firms on the committee submitted designs and the selected winning entry was provided by PJHM Architects. A special thanks to PJHM staffer, Shauna Salazar, for her creative work in providing this cover artwork.

Here are the highlights:

Lower Fees continue: As started with last year’s conference, the rollback in fees will stay in place for both public and private sector members. C.A.S.H. leadership feels it is helpful to our members to continue the  reduced fees while the economic environment remains uncertain. Fees for public sector members will continue at 2006 prices. Fees for private sector members continue to stay under $1,000. Even with the continued reduction in fees, C.A.S.H. will provide the top-quality content and first-class conference to which conference attendees have been accustomed.

Monday – Wednesday Format: With the success of last year’s new format and understanding everyone’s time is limited, the conference will continue to be a three-day conference. The content on Monday will prove to be educational and entertaining. Be sure to arrive in time to attend workshops on professional  development, how to present to school boards, what you and C.A.S.H. can do for each other and much more. This year, on Monday, we also added a hands-on maintenance technology session for all of the maintenance directors attending.

Clinics: This year’s conference offers six clinics that are designed to be in-depth, hands-on learning sessions where attendees will acquire information they can put into immediate use in their districts and businesses.

Roundtables: Roundtable discussions are designed to offer an exchange of ideas in small, informal settings. With over 20 roundtable topics, attendees will have the opportunity to interact with experts on a wide variety of issues related to school construction.

Workshops: Over 35 workshops on school construction, fiscal management, architecture, high performance, maintenance and operations, state agencies, and planning and programming issues will be presented.

Off-site Tour: In the past we have toured school sites as part of this tour. This year, we will tour the CDE building, a Platinum LEED certified building, at 1430 N Street. The tour will take place on Wednesday, February 22, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. Click on the link above for a registration form.  There is no charge for the tour, but you must be registered for the Annual Conference to participate.

Expanded Trade Show: The Trade Show is open during the Welcome Reception on Monday, February 20 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. We will have break services and an after-lunch dessert in the exhibit hall on Tuesday, February 21.
