About the event

One of our most anticipated events of the year, October's Membership Appreciation event comes to you live, in-person!  Join us for breakfast, networking, and a fun, comical, and "scary" panel of employee faux pas. In the past, we heard stories about a holiday party where the CEO's wife ended up naked in the fountain,  lunch meetings ending with coworkers drunkenly army crawling through the office, and other employee antics that makes HR want to hide under the covers.  

What will we hear about this year?

This panel, led by Marlo Johnston, Vice President of Human Resources at Hospice of the East Bay, will elicit those stories as well as deep dive the lessons learned so that HR leaders will be able to navigate similar types of situations.

This event also serves as our Annual Meeting where we elect the 2024 Board of Directors.  Oh, did we  mention that there will be a CCCEAC member gift for attendees as well?  Don't miss out!
