What is CenCal Dreamin’?
CenCal Dreamin’ was created to establish a Salesforce User Community in Central California. There are currently events held in Northern California and Southern California but nothing that targets the users between Sacramento and Bakersfield.
Registered attendees will select from one of three offered tracks — Executive/Manager, Admin/Developer or Specialty — and attend topic-specific virtual Breakout Sessions that will directly address areas of interest to your role in your organization. Each track will include four breakout sessions.
