About the Event

89th Annual CCPCA Conference October 25-26, 2019 - Butte County

Fire and Water: Critical issues in planning for California's future

The 2019 annual conference will be held in Butte County, at downtown Chico's historic Hotel Diamond on Friday October 25, followed by the traditional Saturday Field Trip, and concluding with an evening banquet on the 26th.  As always, the conference will feature presentations by civic leaders, agency professionals, and planning experts on a variety of topics relevant to commissioners and planners throughout the state. 

This year marks the return of the "New Commissioner" training and discussion session, thanks to Tulare County assistant RMA director Mike Washam. The Friday conference presentations kickoff with a unique re-telling of the firestorm that engulfed Paradise, Calif. (November  8, 2018) by Cal Fire's Dave Russell, Incident Commander.

Day 2 Highlights: Bus tour of Paradise to see the scope of the devastation and also all the challenges of rebuilding. After lunch, the tour continues to Oroville Dam, the biggest dam in the U.S., and includes an overview and update on the State Water Project. The tour concludes with a visit to Sierra Nevada Brewery for a tasting and to hear how they used beer to raise millions for victims of the Paradise fire.  

A block of rooms has been set aside Thursday through Saturday nights at the Hotel Diamond for Commissioners, Planners, Students and other Interested Parties who wish to attend.  Please call 866-993-3100 for reservations and mention that you will be attending the CCPCA conference.  In the event the Hotel Diamond rooms should all be filled, we are working on an alternate site for additional accommodations nearby.  Use the "Contact Organizer" button below for assistance.
