Area A is made up of 28 counties from Alpine County to Yuba County. Our area members travel from Ceres to the Nevada border and to the East Bay all the way up to the Oregon border. Because we are such a large geographical area, we host three student conferences and one Adviser conference. The Area A council is always willing to help at any time through emails, phone calls or visits. Please don’t hesitate to contact me, Jill Mortensen or Melissa Edsall, Assistant Coordinators or any of our other 21 council members when help is needed.

With Area Conferences scheduled for the fall, we are cautiously optimistic that the situation in our nation and state will improve, however, we will continue to monitor this closely. We will open registration for any in-person events once we feel we can safely hold them. Please check back and check your email for updates on scheduled events.
