I am, as always surprised that we are rounding the final corner on another year! If I were to refer to this year in racing terms, I would have to evaluate it this way – we started out with all cylinders a-blazing, moving quickly toward the first turn, when BAM, we got hit with over 1,000 bills that our ever vigilant lobbyist, Ron Kingston, had to read, consider the impact and decide on how to proceed. What was accomplished throughout the race was nothing short of epic. With CalRHA, we cruised into the stretch at our first ever CalRHA Statewide Legislative Day Reception. We approached the halfway point of the race with tenacity, information and options for our legislators to help them create a new path that they could live with (called amendments) and continued to move ahead knowing full well that there was still more left in the race that we (our industry) had to do before the race was over.

Executive Director's Update- November 2015

It’s November and I can hardly believe that we are almost at the end of another year. The good news is that only one bill that we either supported or opposed did not go our way – SB655 the Mold Bill. There are requirements for residents that they must also comply with as well, but we did not get the veto we were working for. However, I want to thank each and every one of you who responded to the RED ALERTS! These were sent out over a two week period. AACSC alone sent more than 250 letters and I am not sure of the final number that landed on the Governor’s desk but with eight (8) Associations responding to this request I would imagine that at least 1500-2000 letters were delivered. But I am sure this is not the end so make sure you stay tuned to our weekly updates as more information comes our way.

At press time, the staff and I were in full-blown Trade Show mode, so I hope that you did two things in September – first, that you attended the 47th Annual Trade Show, and (2) that you were able to renew your AACSC membership for 2016 and learned all about our membership drive through the end of the year.

There are three things I look forward to in September - the kids are back in school, Fall, and the annual AACSC Trade Show! Our entire staff works very hard to make our Trade Show a great event for our membership; that is why this year is so special. With the addition of Education Day it not only expands our Trade Show to two days, but we are offering special pricing on 11 different topics on Education Day. So mark your calendars for Education Day, September 23, and our 47th Annual Trade Show & Expo (September 24)!

Summer

Summer is my favorite time of year. Barbeques with my family, time at the beach watching my kids build the perfect sand castle, surfing, playing with whomever happens to be around and, of course, getting an ice cream creation from the ice cream truck that is always just around the corner as you leave the beach. You can’t miss it with the music blaring to make sure that everyone on the shoreline knows they are there to satisfy your sweet tooth. It is a great time to make memories and forget about leaky faucets, the drought and the next job on your “to-do list”.
