Frequently Asked Questions

Due to continued concerns regarding Covid-19, at this point, we can accommodate one PACT representative per county. We encourage you to send the individual most directly implementing your county’s child trafficking response. We will update you as capacity allows for additional attendance. Our PACT Staff, Consultants and the Child Trafficking Response Unit will also be in attendance.  Sorry! This is not an event that is open to the general public or MDT partners – although we hope in the future to have a larger scale statewide conference.

This is an opportunity to pause from our everyday marathon to connect with colleagues from across the state. So we intentionally ask that participants set aside time to be present –  bringing ourselves, our passion, knowledge and experience to fuel a time of creative exchange and vision casting. Think of this as more of a group retreat, than a large-scale conference. Let’s have some fun and relaxation too!

At this point, there is no anticipated virtual attendance. Due to the nature of the  PACT Convening being a retreat type setting it will be highly interactive and is not conducive to a hybrid format. We are planning a  Fall 2022 event to gather our network across all CA Counties in a virtual setting.

In-person check-in will be anytime after 3:00 PM on Tuesday, May 17th. Expect an optional networking opportunity Tuesday evening and a formal agenda beginning the morning of Wednesday, May 18th. We will close with an afternoon session on May 19th.

We selected our location to encourage personal reflection, self-care, and relationship building. Celebrated as Monterey Peninsula’s “Refuge by the Sea” – Asilomar State Beach and Conference Grounds is a breathtakingly gorgeous 107 acres of ecologically diverse beachfront land. Situated within the quaint and scenic town of Pacific Grove, Asilomar offers guests the simple comforts of cozy cottages and historic lodges – and an unforgettable escape from the demands of everyday life. Check out the location HERE.

Each SB 855 Opt-In, participating PACT county will receive one no-cost registration which includes on-site meals May 17th (dinner), May 18th (breakfast, lunch, dinner), and May 19th (breakfast, lunch). It also will include any conference materials, snacks, and facility costs. There may be a cost for additional county attendees, TBD and as capacity allows.


All attendees are responsible for covering travel and lodging (this is an approved SB 855 allocation cost). Group rates for the Asilomar Conference Center are available 5/17 and 5/18 @ $219.70 per night, including taxes, fees, and parking. Visit the Asilomar Lodging Online Reservation site to book your lodging.
