CCBE Annual Conference
Putting Students First – Rebuilding Trust in Public Education
The California County Boards of Education (CCBE) Annual Conference will be held in person on September 8-10, 2023, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Monterey, CA.
The Annual Conference is a unique opportunity for county board leaders to come together at a time when domestic policies and global trends are combining to shape the future of our students. Join county board members, superintendents, and educational think partners from across the state to gain valuable knowledge and information in five key areas: advocacy and community engagement; county board core; funding, finance, and human capital; leadership through shared governance; and wellness, safety, and learning.
As the role of County Offices of Education continues to evolve, CCBE's Annual Conference is dedicated to providing COE board members with the tools and information to empower them to be effecive elected education leaders. This year's sessions will address governance during challenging times and putting students first to rebuild trust in public education. This year's conference will be a chance to gather in person to meet and share ideas with fellow county board members from other regions. Be inspired as you leave with new ideas for serving students.
Take advantage of the exciting breakout sessions, great keynote speakers, and ample networking opportunities. This will be a conference you will want to attend!
As local county office of education board members, it is our responsibility to provide the best education possible for our students. One of the best ways we can work toward that end is by educating ourselves. The management strategies learned through quality professional development and conferences should save our county office of education money and lead to academic success.
We expect our doctors, lawyers, and teachers to continue learning about the latest innovations, solutions, and research in their fields. It is critical for county office of education leaders to do the same.
During these challenging times, when we are faced with tough choices in our spending, an educational leaders' professional development conference may not appear to be a budget priority. But our children benefit from board members attending and using their knowledge to make well-informed policy, finance, or curriculum decisions. The California County Boards of Education Annual Conference presents new strategies for managing county office of education finances, showcases best practices gleaned from real-life experiences at other county offices, and allows board members to network with experts and peers.

- Ensuring inclusive and equitable learning environments for all students (focus on rural, court, and community schools)
