About the Conference:  The Annual San Joaquin Valley Policy Conference is hosted by the San Joaquin Valley Regional Policy Council, representing eight counties within the San Joaquin Valley from Kern to San Joaquin County.  This forum provides an excellent avenue for our Valley to communicate on regional issues that impact the entire San Joaquin Valley region. Issues such as transportation, air quality and state and federal advocacy for community priorities will be covered at this conference. 

Please join us at our opening event on Wednesday March 8th with a Zoofari VIP reception at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.  Then a full day of conference and key note speakers, breakout sessions and tours fills our Thursday, March 9th agenda, culminating in a Hunka, Hunka Burning Fun as we enjoy a taste of the Valley--a large variety of food truck tastings and an evening event with Elvis. Friday we continue with panel speakers and the 8th Annual Valley Blueprint Awards Luncheon. Please see Fresno COG’s SJV Policy Conference webpage for the most current list of speakers, tours and breakouts. Updates will be made to the page as activities are added and confirmed.
