This year’s conference promises to be an exciting and educational experience for all attendees as we focus on the theme Capitol Strategies for Success. There is a tremendous selection of workshops to meet the needs of everyone whether you work for a college, Department of Rehabilitation, Workability, or are a student wanting to explore the varied opportunities within these fields. If you would like to download information from the workshops, please bring a flash drive. A station will be setup where you will be able to download information related to the CAPED Convention & Training. This year our special guests include the President pro Tempore of the California State Senate, Darrell Steinberg. We have invited Rebecca Cokley, Director of Priority Placement for Public Engagement in the Presidential Personnel Office of the Obama Administration, and a member of a new show called Push Girls. This is a new reality show on the Sundance channel which traces the lives of four dynamic, outspoken, and beautiful women who, by accident or illness, have been paralyzed from the neck or the waist down.
We have three exciting fundraising events planned: a golf tournament, wine tasting, and casino night. These three events are not just open to this year’s CAPED Conference & Training attendees. This year’s committee is welcoming anyone who would like to participate in these three fun and exciting events to help raise money for scholarships. All of the proceeds from these events will go towards scholarships for students with disabilities.
This year’s CAPED convention will be held in Sacramento at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento Hotel, October 6-10, 2012. For CAPED guests, single & double occupancy rooms will be available at a discounted rate of $129.00 per night until September 14th.
