With the cancellation of this year’s seminar, we had many requests for virtual training. In lieu of seminar, we are excited to host training one day each week for the month of October! CLICK HERE to view the tentative scheduled trainings.

 

It is with a heavy heart that we have to decided to cancel this years’ 47th Annual Training & Technology Seminar. Region II’s planning committee has been working hard to keep the seminar alive, but after facing some unimaginable obstacles, we had no choice. Health and safety are a priority for CLEARS, which is why we have canceled seminar.  

Training is a key purpose of CLEARS and we are identifying other ways to offer training, share information and update our members. Records throughout California will be facing changes with CIBRS, sex offender tiering, RIPA data collection (smaller agencies), and a very busy legislature. CLEARS will maintain its commitment to provide training, although it may be in a new format during the pandemic.

REFUNDS

All paid registrations will be issued a full refund. Checks will be mailed by Friday.

HOTEL RESERVATIONS

All reservations made under the CLEARS seminar group code are canceled. You will not have to contact the hotel directly.

QUESTIONS

For any questions or concerns, please contact me directly at 805-781-4546 or by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Are you a manager that needs a one stop shop for all the links you'll ever need in one place?  We think so.  The Records Managers of tomorrow need to know all the places to research key organizations and information.  We are compiling a host of key links just for you.  But we could use your help.  Contact us and let us know what links you use frequently to help make your job efficient.

As in any organization, preserving the past to help us build a better future means keeping good records. For years we have tried to maintain records to be passed down through the generations of Boards, and (finally) we have tools to keep this information handy at all times. So, here is some important history about CLEARS.
