2022 Annual Spring Conference

March 3, 2022

Residential * Commercial * Agricultural

The very first Valley Seminar began in 1970.  Our “modern” version of the Valley Seminar became known as the Spring Conference in 2000 and has taken place each spring at the Modesto Center Plaza since 2006 . . . until 2021 when we debuted our first virtual Spring Conference.  In 2022, we will once again bring this offering directly to you – in a virtual classroom format.

This event continues to evolve each year, with expanded breakout sessions to provide a greater depth of topics and the opportunity to hear from and connect with a variety of industry professionals. It is the combination of quality and content which draws an increasing number of attendees not only from the Central Valley but from the greater Bay Area and beyond.
