Robert Coombs, CALCASA's Director of Public Affairs, greets attendees on Day One of CALCASA's Statewide Pre-Conference meeting in Los Angeles.


I think the headline says it all. After months of planning, discussion and organizing, the National Sexual Assault Conference is finally beginning on Wednesday. CALCASA is in Los Angeles at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel where the conference is being held.
Today kicked-off the California Statewide Pre-Conference. In this morning’s plenary session, attendees discussed confidentiality, mandated reporting and record keeping. Tomorrow is the CALCASA Annual Meeting. And Wednesday is the big day!
People from all over California, across the country and around the world will be attending NSAC. There are expected to be about 900 people at the conference. Some of the presenters are already arriving, and we’re excited to learn from them. The conference will feature workshops and plenaries about intervention, prevention, wellness, military, technology, film & media, legal and leadership as they relate to the movement of ending sexual violence.
Attendees are  tweeting — so join in the tweeting frenzy! The hashtag is #NSAC. And don’t forget to follow @CALCASA. We Tweet, You Tweet, Re-Tweet! If you have comments, questions or suggestions while at NSAC, feel free to use Twitter to communicate with CALCASA staff.
We’re so excited and honored to be hosting this conference. We hope everyone enjoys it just as much as we’ve enjoyed bringing together all the voices that are dedicated to building the world that we want to live in — a world free from violence.
