Cal State L.A. will recognize employees with 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years of service to the University and also honor this year's Outstanding Staff.
Theme: “Celebrating Your Successes”
Speaker: Dr. Temple Grandin
Dr. Temple Grandin was honored in Time Magazine 2010 as one of “The 100 Most Influential People in the World.” Her research and teaching has had a major impact on meat and livestock industries worldwide. Her achievements are even more remarkable because she was an autistic child. At age two she had no speech and all the signs of severe autism. Many hours of speech therapy and intensive teaching enabled Grandin to learn speech.
This exhibition highlights the extensive career of Los Angeles-based artist Walter Askin whose multi-faceted work ranges from sardonic graphic works, large painterly abstractions, to vibrant figurative sculptures. In each of these respective mediums he creates imaginative yet satirical images whose eclectic imagery resist being defined by any distinct movement.
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 12, 6-8 p.m.
This year's Conference will offer more than 40 innovative and engaging workshops led by experts and practitioners from law, social work, education, probation, mental health, juvenile justice, medicine, and other disciplines. Hundreds of judges, lawyers, child welfare social workers, mental health specialists, probation officers, advocates, and many other professionals associated with the dependency and delinquency court systems will be attendance.
