CCCBHA's 2017 Fall Policy Forum and Membership Meeting on October 19-20, 2017 at the Embassy Suites Ontario in Ontario, CA  was a great turn out! 

Member organizations enjoyed informative and educational presentations from Director of Policy and Advocacy Rusty Selix on the future of behavioral health care in California; presentation by CCCBHA's Executive Director Paul Curtis and Policy Committee Chair Leon Hoover on the Policy Platform for 2018; national perspective on the future of safety net providers; MHSOAC Executive Director Toby Ewing outlining steps and strategies of MHSOAC; and Steven Ramsland of Catalyst Health Resources, LLC on digital behavioral health technology. 

Afterwards, our member attendees enjoyed a reception with hors d' oeuvre, wine, and raffle prizes: an Amazon tablet courtesy of Valant, a $100 Visa gift card courtesy of NonProfits United, and two $50 prizes from CCCBHA for members who filled out the survey at the end of each day of the forum.
