The preconference activities kickoff Friday, March 24th, 2017 with the CLSA Education Foundation Golf Tournament in always-sunny Orange County. On Saturday, March 25th, in addition to the traditional full-day workshops, California surveyors will be able to attend a CLSA Board of Directors meeting. Following the board meeting and the workshops, surveyors are welcome to participate in the always-festive CLSA Education Foundation Bowling Tournament.
The 2017 CLSA Annual Conference program begins the morning of Sunday, March 26th with the traditional opening ceremonies and a general session presentation. This earlier Sunday start allows attendees to get all the education hours from previous CLSA conferences with one less day and night away from work and home. After opening ceremonies, conference attendees with have four separate conference breakout tracks to choose from, with select sessions repeating to give everyone a chance to hear from the top presenters in the surveying industry. After Sunday’s sessions conclude, attendees can look forward to the annual Opening Reception in the Exhibit Hall. This year’s exhibit hall will be open one less day, but will feature additional events inside the hall, ensuring attendees will get every opportunity to see the very latest in products and services available to today’s professional surveyors.
Monday, March 27th offers a full day of breakout sessions featuring blocks of four concurrent, 90 minute sessions with breaks in-between in the exhibit hall. Monday’s lunch will also take place in the ballroom with the exhibits, allowing exhibitors and attendees additional opportunities to interact. Capping Monday will be the CLSA Education Foundation Auction Cocktail Party and Dinner - another great event that helps fund educational opportunities for college students studying surveying.
The 2017 CLSA Annual Conference will wrap on Tuesday March 28th with another day of terrific breakout sessions. By concluding the conference on Tuesday instead of Wednesday, California surveyors will enjoy all of the continuing education of previous conferences in one fewer day, saving on hotel and related travel costs and getting you home and back to work sooner.
Conference registration and the full education curriculum will be available very soon. If you have attended previously and are planning to join us again, you won't be disappointed. If you have not attended the CLSA Annual Conference and were waiting for the right time, wait no more. We look forward to seeing you March 24th - 28th, 2017 in Anaheim/Garden Grove!
