Calling all Presenters...

It’s that time again!  The California Chapter of the National Eligibility Worker’s Association (CalNEW) is planning their 2018 annual conference.  CalNEW brings the human services community together to celebrate their profession and provide helping professionals with a platform to learn, share, and grow.  With sessions covering everything from program eligibility to professional development, attendees will take away valuable knowledge that will have immediate impact.  This year, the conference will be held in Stockton, California on February 21st-23rd.  The theme is Greatness Grows Here – paying tribute to the thriving agriculture community of the Central Valley.  CalNEW is working hard to deliver one of the best conferences yet – but we need your help to do it.


What Constitutes a Great Proposal?

One of the reasons people continue to come to the CalNEW conference each year is you, our presenters.  We’re looking for people like you to share your knowledge and expertise on the trials and tribulations of human services.  We want to learn how you’ve managed change, how you practice self-care, and what tips and tricks you’ve learned along the way to help you make a name for yourself and get promoted.  The best workshops mix the practical and actionable with a dash of inspiration – are you up to the challenge?

This year’s program will focus on the following topics:


  • Eligibility

  • Employment & Training / Family Engagement

  • Professional Development

  • Team Building

  • Stress-Management / Self-Care

  • Training for Trainers

  • Motivating yourself and others


Are you inspired yet?
