On behalf of the entire Conference Planning Committee, I am privileged to send the first of many invitations to join us in Sacramento for the 2016 AOA Annual Conference. The Conference will be held January 10th through 13th at the revitalized landmark Hyatt Regency in the heart of our Capitol City.

Our theme for this Conference is “Partners in Supporting the Mission of the California State University.” Collectively this is who we are – partners with the CSU and with each other – and most importantly this is what we do so well throughout the year.

Maximizing the hallmarks of our previous conferences, the Committee is dedicated to again deliver inspiring keynotes and general sessions; professional development; track specific educational sessions, and purposeful, plentiful networking opportunities all while maintaining the valued sense of intimacy we share as the AOA family.

The Educational Sessions are the core of the Conference and our Business Partners provide the critical sponsorships that enable us to continually produce a quality event. If you have an idea for a particular presentation, a session topic or an impactful presenter, please contact our Sessions Planning Chair, Raven Tyson, at . Equally, if you use or know of a potential vendor who would benefit from participating as an AOA Business Partner, please contact our Business Partner Chair, Fred Neely, at .

Registration and the hotel room block will open in August and the Committee will be posting developing program information on a regular basis throughout the year. Be sure to follow us on Facebook ( for the most up to the minute conference news and information.

If at any time you have questions about or suggestions for the Conference please feel free to contact me at . I look forward to our time together this coming January in Sacramento.

Until then, stay well!
