Stronger by the Member: The 2015 Spring Conference & Trade Show

Last week, a record-breaking 690-plus members and supporters showed how CALA is Stronger by the Member at the Spring Conference & Trade Show in Santa Clara.

Attendees learned the latest in regulatory and legal issues, dementia care, activity programming, and marketing and operational best practices, among other topics.

We had the chance to network at great events, including including CALA’s “Cheers to 20 Years” anniversary party on Tuesday night.

We welcomed 15 recipients of the student scholarship to the conference, and we celebrated the best Assisted Living has to offer by honoring recipients of the 2015 Northern California Excellence in Service Award and the 2015 Innovations in Quality Award.


Here’s what attendees had to say:

Fantastic. CALA continually offers the best training sessions of any training I attend throughout the year.

It is always such a pleasure to get together with the professionals in our industry.

Every session I attended had both quality content and quality speakers. I expected to walk away with practical information that I can put to use in my community, and I did.

Loved the trade show and wine tasting, it was brilliant!

My first CALA conference and I feel you all exceeded my expectations. We will be back with even more members of our team.
4Many thanks to our conference and event sponsors, speakers, exhibitors, volunteers, CALA associate members, and the CALA Education Committee for their contributions to a great event!
