A system-wide professional development conference for extended education staff, the event serves as an opportunity for employees from the 23 campuses to network, share best practices, learn about other functional areas within extended education, and improve skills and knowledge.
Los Angeles is often called the entertainment capital of the world. Film and television are partially responsible for changing the face of Los Angeles County from that of orchards and ranches to the major metropolitan powerhouse it has become. According to a November 2012 economic study by the Los Angeles County Development Corporation, the entertainment industry remains one the county’s largest industries and was responsible for providing jobs to roughly 247,000 workers in the previous year. Nearly everyone who lives in the area knows at least one person in the industry, so much so that it is taken for granted. Although the Oscar and Emmy seasons have wrapped, there are still those responsible for making sure entertainment is top of mind throughout the year: entertainment marketers.
