NCCPC’s 4th Annual All Member Meeting

About the Event

NCCPC staff and members connect once every year to celebrate each other and the network, to acknowledge our achievements in the current fiscal year, reconnect on our shared vision for the future, and share upcoming activities and opportunities which include how to get resources to support your organization and how to contribute and get involved.

Join us at 2:30 PM for a presentation from our Committee leaders and a special panel with the California Children’s Savings Account Coalition and the California Treasurer’s Office, Putting the “Cradle” In Cradle-to-Career.

Members, partners, and special guests have the optional opportunity to network during the Happy Hour starting at 4:00 PM at CoBiz Richmond, Inc. in Richmond, CA!
