Note: CAMEO also hosts regional meetings around the state to listen to members’ needs and provide a forum for collaboration.
Each year, CAMEO members gather in Sacramento to discuss the wider trends in our field and meet with legislators to advocate for the micro sector. Internally at CAMEO, it’s been a year of transition and external forces are rapidly shifting. So we thought it fitting to organize this year’s meeting around the theme – “Thriving in Transition.”
Register for our Annual Member Meeting and Advocacy Day in Sacramento and take advantage of the early bird price of $150 until May 4.
