2022 Annual Convention

Thu, Nov 17, 2022 to Sat, Nov 19, 2022
Hyatt Regency SFO
General Info

The League's Annual Convention is the premier professional development event for California's community college leaders. This event brings together CEOs, trustees, faculty, staff, administrators, and partners from across the state to share tools, models, and solutions to system issues, as well as celebrate accomplishments.

This year’s theme is Our Time is Now. The pandemic has shown us that we can do things differently, that we shouldn’t do business as usual, and we shouldn’t return to normal. We’ve seen that our colleges can be nimble and adapt to the changing time. Now is our time to build on the successes of what we’ve achieved in the face of adversity to ensure the longevity of our colleges and districts.
