Convention Registration Information

We are very excited to invite you to join us as we celebrate 50 years of the California Bus Association! Gather to toast this golden anniversary with bus companies from all over the West at this year’s exciting and informative convention. As always, the CBA Convention & Trade show will afford you the opportunity to exchange your ideas, war stories and experiences with other operators and suppliers. Invest three days learning the latest trends that will help ensure the future of your company. You won't regret it!

This year we are very excited about our speaker line-up. David Berry from RULE13 Learning will be our keynote presenter this year and he will be sharing how leaders can strive to be more courageous, more resourceful and more generous in the face of complexity and change. Also joining us with some terrific content will be industry experts Mark Szyperski, Ron Chavel, Bob Crescenzo, Brian Mills, Spencer Tenney and Michelle Wiltgen. Additionally, we will have both national and state updates on current legislation and regulations affecting the industry.

Our regular social and networking events remain a key part of this year’s anniversary convention. We’ll gather Sunday evening for the annual Welcome Reception where you’ll rekindle past relationships and - hopefully - make some new ones. Monday features our general education sessions, the bus exhibit and Monday Night Madness caps the day’s events. Tuesday will see the return of the Bus Industry Safety Council (BISC) West event, implemented with the assistance of our national partners. Tuesday afternoon will feature the annual trade show and we will conclude the day and the convention with a sumptuous meal overlooking the Pacific at the annual reception and awards banquet.

The crown jewel of this year’s celebratory convention is the host hotel: The Westin Carlsbad Resort and Spa. This all-new iteration of the Westin offers stunning Pacific Ocean views, luxurious resort pools for the young and young-at-heart and modern facilities that will offer unparalleled venues for the convention events.
