Hula Networks attends the 56th Annual CETPA conference in Sacramento California. The CETPA Annual Conference had over 1,200 attendees, 200 booths and over 800 exhibit staff.
Hula Networks was happy to spend the week of November 7th at the annual California Educational Technology Professionals Association conference. CETPA as the association is known, utilizes their annual conference to bring together California educational organizations with technology companies from around the world to educate their members on the latest advancements in educational technology and provide a forum where members and vendors can mix and mingle in a relaxed environment while establishing new connections and reconnecting with existing relationships.
CETPA is an association of Educational Technology Professionals (technologists) within the State of California. Founded in 1960, the major emphasis of the association’s activities are directed towards improving Administrative Information Processing in public education within the State of California and to prepare its membership to better meet and support the technological needs of the Instructional Program.
One of the Association’s goals is to promote the integration of instructional and administrative technology in school agencies. The Association also functions as a conduit of information between the California Department of Education and local agencies. The Association disseminates information to its membership by:
- Updates posted on this website
- The Association’s publication, “The EdTech Journal”
- Discussion lists (listservs) created to support specific topical interest areas
- Holding regional Special Interest Group meetings three or more times a year in various statewide locations
- Strategic partnerships; and the annual conference
By providing pertinent information to its membership in a timely manner, the Association can prepare educational technologists to better meet and support technological demands placed upon them by their respective educational agencies in both the instructional and administrative arenas.
