40 Years & Growing Stronger - "Heralding the Past...Envisioning the Future"
Three times a year, the California State Federation (CFRW) prepares workshops, conferences and board meetings to continue our goal of educating our membership. Every two years, at the close of the two-year term of CFRW's Executive Committee, the third conference becomes, instead, the Biennial Convention. All of our conferences and conventions are days of fellowship and inspiration as members and guests from throughout the Golden State come together to conduct the business of the Federation and learn new and exciting ways to accomplish our goals and objectives. Beginning in 2020 each conference and convention shall be planned and executed by the statewide elected 1st Vice President as program chair.
All are always invited and encouraged to attend Board Meetings, conferences, and conventions. For all members, these activities add not only to their knowledge of how the Federation works but allows them to meet individuals throughout the state who are able to work with all of us at our Club level.

November 20, "Dose of Action" How to Tackle our National Health Crisis
April Rovero, Executive Director, National Coalition Against Prescription Drug Abuse
The National Coalition Against Prescription Drug Abuse (NCAPDA) was founded to prevent prescription drug related substance use disorder and overdose deaths through community education, policy change and legislative advocacy at the local, state and national levels.
It was founded in June, 2010, just a few months after the tragic loss of April and Joseph Rovero’s youngest son, Joseph (Joey) John Rovero, III, from a lethal combination of alcohol and prescription medication that had been prescribed by a doctor just nine days before.
