29th Annual Training Conference

February 21-23, 2018

Greatness Grows through NEW PATHS in San Joaquin


This year we are bringing back the Directors Panel, with Directors from CalWORKs, CalFresh, Medi-Cal, Welfare to Work, Child Care and a representative from the California Welfare Directors Association (CWDA). Human Service professionals from all over the state will gather together and network. The Conference will provide something for everyone. Enjoy our Opening Key Note speaker Michael Tubbs, Mayor of Stockton and our Closing Key Note speaker Corry March. Both Key Note speakers are very supportive of the NEW PATHS organization.


Here are some of the workshops that will be offered:

  • County Welfare Directors Association

  • Welfare Fraud

  • IHSS Basics and Interactions with EW’s

  • Funding changes to Foster Care/KinGap

  • Intake Innovations

  • Projecting a Professional Image

  • Team Building

  • Stress Management

  • Professional Boundaries

  • Generational Diversity

  • Power of Positivity

  • Motivation and Engagement

  • Lost Art of Communication

  • CalWin Functionality

  • Unconscious Bias in Human Services

  • Working with Change and Resistance

We will also offer additional workshops for CalWORKS, CalFresh and Medi-Cal programs, discussing upcoming policy changes that will give you knowledge to share with others. Throughout the conference you will have many opportunities to network with associates who could become resources for you. There will be a meet and greet on Wednesday night with the president of our state chapter. We will also have a little trivia fun playing the eligibility expert game. Get involved or just come watch and have a fun evening. We encourage you to share your workshop experiences with others who are unable to attend.
