As your union, CSEA has been closely monitoring developments regarding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and how we can best protect your safety and your rights. As event coordinators for the upcoming Paraeducator Conference, we have been paying close attention to guidelines and protocols for conferences and group events.
The World Health Organization has declared the Coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic. Government health agencies are advising the public of hazards associated with attending large-scale events where people are in close proximity. As a result, many organizations have already canceled several conferences and events around the state.
Following current safety protocols and an abundance of caution, CSEA has decided to cancel this year’s Paraeducator Conference. The health of our members and our communities must come first.
There are no current plans to reschedule this event. However, we will be holding our next Paraeducator Conference on March 23-25, 2021, in Fresno, California.
We will be refunding registration fees for the conference for registrations. The reimbursement will go back directly to the original payer. Please be patient as we work diligently to issue refunds as quickly and efficiently as possible. We ask that you wait a minimum of 7-10 business days to inquire if you have not received your refund.
Do not forget to revisit your hotel and travel plans to update or cancel as needed. Most hotels require a 72-hour cancellation before the check-in date to avoid a cancellation fee or no-show fee. Please note that CSEA cannot cancel your travel reservations — you must contact the hotel or airline directly.
Please stay safe, and thank you for your understanding and patience as we manage the numerous inquiries regarding the cancelation of this conference.

While this year's Paraeducator Conference was canceled, many of the resources we planned to share with you are now available online.
