Wednesday & Thursday, April 10 & 11 in Sacramento
Hosted by California Fair Services Authority (CFSA), Western Fairs Association (WFA) and CDFA’s Fairs & Expositions (F&E) Branch, the orientation kicks off with a day at the Fair Services Building, home to CFSA and WFA. You’ll meet agency staff and get an overview of each agency’s responsibilities. You’ll also learn about the resources available to you from CFSA and WFA, and how CFSA, WFA and F&E work together on conferences, conventions, training opportunities, and more.
You’ll spend Thursday downtown at the CDFA offices, meeting with staff from F&E. You’ll enjoy a continental breakfast followed by sessions on everything from California State Rules to Financial Reporting and Board Meetings 101.
As we get closer to the orientation’s dates, you’ll receive a full agenda along with a short registration form, hotel suggestions and directions to the Fair Services Building and to CDFA’s headquarters.
