The Central Valley Higher Education Consortium and it’s Board of Directors would like to invite you to our annual Education Policy and Legislative Summit coming up in late October.

We are delighted that the Annual CVHEC Education Policy and Legislative Summit has become one of the most anticipated events here in the Central Valley regarding higher education in our nine county region.  This year’s  theme,  All means All in the Central Valley – Clearing the road to the finish line, reflects the commitment by CVHEC leaders and institutions to an equity agenda that leads to completion in a timely manner.  We are happy that, for the first time, we are inviting our K/12 partners to join us and participate in the program.

A block of rooms for attendees have been set aside for those who will need to come in the night before. Please visit the travel tab for details.

For those of you who are able, we would like to invite you to a networking reception the night before on Thursday, October 25, at the hotel.  This would be an opportunity to meet and speak to other attendees in an informal relaxed setting.
