State Executive Board


Welcome to CASCWA,

Dear CASCWA members and partners in education:

My name is Brian Chandler and I am extremely excited and honored to be the CASCWA State President for the 2018-2019 school year.

I can still remember starting my job in 2007 and being informed by my supervisor on my first day that it would be in my best interest to attend a conference in Napa. My supervisor added that this conference would provide me with professional development that would help me learn more about my position of working in the field of Child Welfare and Attendance. Little did I know that after attending that first conference, I would form friendships and connections with other educators that have helped me become a better leader today.

I have been a CASCWA member for the past 11 years and I have enjoyed all aspects of this organization. I currently work in Child Welfare and Attendance for Ceres Unified School District, where I have the opportunity every day to help make a difference in the lives of others.

CASCWA is an organization that allows members the opportunity to reach out to other experts in the field of education when questions arise. Being a member of CASCWA opens up networking and professional development opportunities statewide throughout the year. Above all else, however, I think that the most remarkable experience that members have is being a part of providing annual scholarships to students for overcoming immense odds and demonstrating the true meaning of resiliency. These remarkable students realize that they truly have the strength and ability to becoming anything in life that they strive to become.

The CASCWA State Executive Board met over the summer and spoke again about our goals for the upcoming year. We will focus in the 2018-2019 year on teamwork and ensure that all four sections work together to continue to make an impact in the lives of our students. We will continue focus on equity, improving member services, and creating partnerships with other associations and organizations. The plan is to increase the number of people reached throughout California; with the ultimate goal of helping students succeed in life.

Thank you for visiting this site. We hope to see you soon at an upcoming CASCWA Section event and/or the 2019 State Conference at the Silverado Resort in Napa.


Brian Chandler
State President
