Hilton Arden West, Sacramento


Registration will open in January for the 2017 CSDA Children and Families Policy Symposium scheduled on March 1, 2017, at the Hilton Arden West, Sacramento. Please reach out to your colleagues, board members, judicial partners, policymakers, health and higher education administrators to ask them to mark their calendars. This year’s policy theme is “A Child’s Well-Being…It Takes a Family.” With a new Administration and Congressional leadership on the horizon, our symposium is a great opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations about how we can collaborate to bridge gaps and support successful outcomes for all children.

Our list of talented guest speakers continues to expand. Mark your calendars and help us spread the word!
