California Communications Association



Is CANCELED for 2020!


These past few months have been challenging for everyone, and we hope that you are all safe and healthy amid the COVID-19 pandemic.  Due to COVID-19 uncertainty, the CalCom Board of Directors, out of concern and caution, has voted to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference which was scheduled to take place in Monterey, California from October 11-14, 2020.

We look forward to 2021 when we can come together again with all our member companies, associate members, and partners, in Lake Tahoe at “Edgewood Tahoe” from October 11-13, 2021.







2020 Annual Conference

Thanks to everyone who attended the Annual Conference in Sonoma, CA!!  It was a great venue, a beautiful location, and amazing weather for this year’s gathering!  The conference is an opportunity to meet in one place and discuss state and federal issues that impact our industry.  There were networking events to reconnect with those familiar faces, and hopefully, meet some new ones!   A big thank you to Kathy Rea, MACC, and Sharon Lundgren, Volcano Telephone, who captured photos highlighting speaker sessions, award recipients, silent auction donations, and networking events throughout the conference.


Thank you to the speakers and industry experts who presented over the two (2) days of programming.  We know your schedules are busy, and we really appreciate the time and diligence you put into bringing the most current information to our conference attendees.  Below are a few of the presentations available to download:

1.  NextGen 9-1-1 & Cal OES Update (Budge Currier) click here. 
2.  Projecting the Industry in 2024  (Chad Duval & Sara Yocum) click here.
3.  Leadership Across the Generations (Chip Espinoza) click here.


To all who sponsored an event or contributed to the Robert Ringman Scholarship Fund Silent Auction, we’re grateful for your contributions!  The Silent Auction profited $1,070, which goes directly into the RRSF fund to award family of CalCom members with financial assistance to continue their college careers.  Funding and awarding scholarships each year is a top priority for CalCom, and we appreciate everyone who participated and bid on items donated!!
