In accordance with Governor Newsom’s declared State of Emergency and today’s guidance from the California Department of Public Health regarding restrictions of mass gatherings, the County Engineers Association of California and the League of California Cities are canceling the CEAC Spring Conference and Public Works Officers Institute scheduled March 18-20, 2020, in Monterey, CA.

While this is the right decision, it comes with much regret knowing all the hard work that was made to be able to host this conference.  For that, we apologize for any inconvenience this causes to our attendees and speakers.

CEAC will be communicating more information regarding refunding registration after our Board of Directors meeting, March 20, 2020.

In the meantime, participants need to contact the hotel directly to cancel their hotel reservations.  This must be done no later than 48 hours prior to your scheduled arrival in order to cancel without penalty. To cancel your hotel reservation, please call (831) 649-4234 or online.

We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Merrin Gerety at mgerety@counties.org

Thank you,
Rick Tippett
Director of Transportation, Trinity County
2019-2020 CEAC President
