Each November, CAHF’s Convention and Exposition are held in Palm Springs. By far CAHF’s largest meeting, the convention includes a 275 booth Expo, special events and social functions, educational sessions throughout the meeting, nationally recognized speakers and the opportunity to meet with new people or see old friends. This convention is attended by more than 2,000 people. The finale is CAHF’s Installation Banquet, a dress-up affair with a gourmet dinner and world-class entertainment. The convention marks the end of CAHF’s year as new officers are elected and CAHF begins again with new committee members for the coming year.

CAHF is the largest provider of continuing education for long-term care providers in California.
