CLCA 2018 Annual Convention

Learn! Engage! Relax! Enjoy!

Cool breezes and a sunny outlook are on the agenda for CLCA’s Annual Convention. With a laid-back vibe, friendly atmosphere and dynamic arts scene, San Diego sets the tone for creativity and productivity during- and-after CLCA’s Annual Convention.


The convention's educational offerings focus on practical information you can immediately put to use, providing plenty of peace of mind. With fires raging throughout California, homeowners are increasingly turning to green industry professionals for help. Landscape Designer Renee French will talk you through the design, plant selection and maintenance steps need to increase property value and provide homeowners with peace of mind. In addition to addressing the ins and outs of firescaping, she'll also address another hot topic: Petscaping -- beautiful landscapes that make special consideration for pets.

When it comes to peace of mind, Cal/OSHA may be the last thing you want to think about. Our second speaker, Dan Leiner, an Area Manager for Cal/OSHA's Consultation Services Branch, will quickly change that opinion. With plenty of practical advice, Dan will help you avoid being burned by Cal/OSHA regulations.

In the afternoon, we'll tour Coastal Roots Farm and learn how they cultivate healthy, connected communities by integrating sustainable agriculture, food justice and ancient Jewish wisdom. Our last stop will be a guided tour of the U.S.S. Midway, the longest-serving aircraft carrier in the 20th century.
