Dear CASSC Members and friends,
Thank you for being a continued member of CASSC. As you know, your CASSC Board has been woking on providing more regional conferences. Unfortunately due to low regional conference registration, Our conference scheduled for Monday, June 15, 2015 in Santa Maria has been cancelled. We will continue to work to meet the needs of our membership and our mission.
Our board apologizes for this unexpected cancellation and will schedule a northern California workshop in the Spring. Please stay tuned for details.

Pacifica Senior services truly feels our previous involvement with CASSC Conferences have provided staff with valuable learning experiences and program development information.
Last year’s CASSC Conference was a great networking experience for our recently hired Meals on Wheels & transportation Specialist Denise Reed.
Communication with other providers and conference speakers introduced her to many aspects ranging from developing health and wellness amongst senior participants, program marketing and outreach, state and county information and resources, as well as an opportunity to build networking relationships with other providers.
