SAN JOAQUIN'S SEPTEMBER 1ST WORKSHOP WAS A SUPER SUCCESS!

San Joaquin's President, Sharma Uma, sent the following message to all of CASCWA members and friends, "Thanks to all who attended our annual San Joaquin September Workshop here in Modesto!   Indeed it was one of the best workshops attended, many walk-ins.

Wow! What an incredible CASCWA State Conference!

CASCWA's Delta Sierra Section's 2022 State Conference will be remembered for years to come.  The conference was well planned, the facilities were superb, and the registration process was solid.  

The "in person" conference quickly sold out and a second "one day virtual conference" was put in place for those who could not attend in person.

CASCWA events are known for their important and relevant sessions!  Please go to the state conference page and view the session presented.  This conference really brought together all attendees with professional leaders in our fields and vendors who truly relate to our daily activities and responsibilities.

The conference was a total success!
