Regional Leadership Forum

We are committed to bringing you a unique online experience.  We will have opportunities for you to individually network in virtual meeting rooms that allow you to have individual conversations and network with peers.  We plan limited access roundtables with experts.  And the will be the “Super-California-istic Let’s All Be Precocious Trivia Contest.”

But a great conference also needs great speakers.  Starting with former US Secretary Anthony Foxx, we are assembling top speakers to address issues that matter to regions and matter to California.  We promise you that it will be more lively than your typical online meeting.  Join us.  You will be glad you did.
