Event Description

AUDIENCE: CTA Local Chapter Presidents, Vice-Presidents or designee.

Join us for the CTA Presidents ConferenceJuly 13-16, 2023 in Burlingame. Newly developed interactive sessions designed for new and experienced chapter leaders will provide training to enhance your skills as a local leader and help build systems of success for your chapter.

Code of Conduct for CTA Events

Child Care

You must Register your Child to reserve a spot at Camp CTA.


Children attending Camp CTA must adhere to the conference Health & Safety Policies.

CTA is offering a no-charge child care program at the 2023 Presidents Conference.  Child care is available to all Presidents Conference attendees who are the primary caregivers of the child(ren) attending Camp CTA for children ages 6 months to 16 years. While you’re attending meetings, your children can enjoy their own Camp, organized by ACCENT on Children’s Arrangements, Inc., a national company specializing in children’s activities. Camp CTA is a complete morning to early evening entertainment program packed with activities. *All children must be preregistered to ensure proper staffing levels. Children participate in age appropriate activities, including arts and crafts projects and active games, in a safe, nurturing, and educational environment. The high ratio of caregiver to child (1:2 for children 6 months-12 months, 1:3 for children 13 months-2 years, 1:5 for children 3-5 years, and 1:8 for children 6-16 years) ensures campers receive lots of personal attention. Program will include lunch and dinner on Friday, as well as breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, afternoon snacks and juice, entertainment, and craft materials.

When: Camp CTA will take place from July 13 – 17, 2023
