Several speakers addressed the delegation including: Susie Berg, President Elect of the Junior League of San Francisco; Cynthia Foster, board member of the Association of Junior Leagues International and past President of Junior League of San Francisco; Political Solutions, CalSPAC's legislative analyst; and Minouche Kandel, Women's Policy Director of the San Francisco Department on the Status of Women.
CalSPAC had a historic vote at Fall Conference to add a fifth policy subcommittee - Human Trafficking - to its current list of policy subcommittees: Education, Health, Family Support, and Violence Prevention. This is an important step, as CalSPAC will now have a dedicated group of delegates reviewing human trafficking related bills for legislative action and to help us further develop our sponsored legislation platform.
Fall Conference concluded with a presentation of SPAC-tacular Awards, a new way to continually recognize delegates throughout the year from the Co-Chairs. Christie Bettendorf (Junior League of Long Beach) was awarded for her leadership within CalSPAC's education policy area and helping with the 2015-18 Strategic Plan. Kathryn Drewry (Junior League of Bakersfield) was recognized for her help with our Twitter and Periscope social media efforts.
Thank you to our Fall Conference Host Shannon Conner (Junior League of San Francisco) and the Junior League of San Francisco, for their hospitality. The next conference will take place in Los Angeles, March 18-20, 2016. We're excited to see all of our delegates then!
