It’s Back! The California Conference on Apprenticeship

Charles Henkels
Director, Regional Apprenticeship and Work-Based Learning, Riverside Community College District

The California Conference on Apprenticeship (CCA) will take place for the first time in 4 years, May 3-6, 2022 in Monterey. This event is an opportunity for the entire apprenticeship community to gather, share best practices and get inspired. The last conference, which was held on April 2018 in San Diego, hosted representatives from all over the apprenticeship community, included nearly 30 breakout sessions and workshops, and brought in speakers from across the US, as well as critical leaders right here in California. 

This is the only conference in California that brings together apprenticeship advocates to share effective practices and solutions that help to improve the quality of programs statewide. Presentations and workshops will highlight services and offer best practices, on methods to grow and develop quality apprenticeship programs.

The CCA is an in-person multi-event conference, and participants can customize their experience based on the events they choose to attend. If you can’t attend in person, there is also an option to sponsor the event and show your support.

Submissions for CCA speakers or panels are still open. If you are an experienced practitioner in apprenticeship, this is a great opportunity to share your knowledge. The deadline to complete the proposal form is Friday, March 25.

We hope you can attend and look forward to all the great presentations. See you in Monterey!
