CPA’s 2020 Leadership and Advocacy Conference

Sunday March 15th & Monday March 16th



What To Expect

CPA’s Leadership and Advocacy Conference (LAC) trains psychologists and graduate students in the elements of CPA’s advocacy program and culminates in a day of lobbying for CPA’s advocacy agenda with legislators in the state capitol.

Who Should Attend?

For the Sunday session, each chapter and division is asked to send their President/Chair and their Local Advocacy Network Representative. CPA will cover the conference fee, food and partial lodging expenses for both of the individuals that chapters and divisions send (2 participants per chapter/division). Attendees who are not designated by their chapter or division will be responsible for their own lodging and pay a $175 conference fee.


Sunday’s meals include a lunch and afternoon snack provided by CPA and Division I. Dinner will be on your own that evening, but CPA will provide a list of restaurants within walking distance to the hotel. Tuesday will include a light continental breakfast and lunch for all attendees. CPA is unable to reimburse you for any meals eaten outside of these events.


CPA and Division I have arranged for a discounted rate at the Citizen Hotel in Downtown Sacramento at $159/night, plus taxes. The hotel can be accessed with this link or by calling
(916) 447-2700; mention your affiliation with the California Psychological Association. This will be the most convenient option as the meeting space is also in the Citizen Hotel this year. Only one lodging night (Sunday) is required this year. BOOKING is now open.


CPA and Division I will reimburse qualified LAC participants for half of the cost of a room at CPA's special rate of $159/night plus taxes. You will be reimbursed half of the room rate, which means if you have a roommate for the duration of your stay, your entire cost will be covered. You are responsible for booking your own hotel room. Book your room early – this special rate ends when all the rooms sell out or on February 17, 2020 (whichever occurs first).


Conference check-in begins on Sunday March 15th at 9:00 am at the Citizen Hotel. The program will start at 10:00 am and end at 5:00 pm. Monday’s Lobby Day will begin at 9:00 am and conclude by 5:00 pm.
