Symposium Committee


The Symposium Committee plans and produces an annual training event for the community members of Santa Clara County.


Meetings are open to the public and are generally held on the 2nd Monday of every month (Sept - June) at the District Attorney's Office, 70 West Hedding Street, San Jose, CA 95112, 12:15 PM to 1:15 PM. Please check the online CAPC calendar to confirm the date, time and location of the next meeting.

Agendas and Minutes:

Symposium Committee Agendas and Minutes are posted online for public access at the County of Santa Clara's Boards and Commissions website.

Structure and Procedures:

The Chairperson of the Committee is selected at the beginning of the fiscal year. Responsibilities of the Committee include:

  • Plan and execute the annual Child Abuse Prevention Council Symposium.

  • Secure a venue and arrange catering.
  • Determine the program for the event.
  • Publicize the event and register attendees.

Receipts from a symposium are used as seed money for the next year's symposium. The Committee must submit a budget at the end of the fiscal year for the following year as do all other committees. Money raised through a symposium belongs to the Council, not the committee. The Council approves the budget of the Council, of which the Symposium Committee's budget is a piece.
