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
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.
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.
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.
