Session Snapshots and CitiPAC Reception Update for the 2017 Annual Conference

September 6, 2017
This year, the League of California Cities® Annual Conference & Expo will feature over 55 educational sessions.
 
The topics explored at the conference cover current issues important to the changing needs of local officials. The League’s Annual Conference webpage has information on speakers, sessions and more. Here is a sample of a couple of sessions and a special event that will be offered.

Public Safety Sessions
 
Providing emergency services is an essential part of any city’s public safety program. The Ghost Ship Fire in Oakland tragically highlighted that buildings and occupancies designed for one use are being used very differently. Learn from a multidiscipline panel of experts on the issues and best practices in the areas of code enforcement, fire, life safety and broader community policy concerns. 
 
The conference will also cover topics related to licensed activities under Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act. Discover the types of funding available to local governments for enforcement actions — including emergency response for indoor cultivation and manufacturing.
 
Learn about current laws that affect the use and seizure of legal and illegal fireworks, including the stockpiling of seized materials, industry viewpoints, and regulatory options for consideration.
 
AB 1825 Training: Harassment, Discrimination, and Retaliation for Elected Officials
 
State law requires elected officials to receive two hours of training on workplace harassment, discrimination and retaliation, applicable legal standards, reporting and investigating obligations, abusive conduct, and potential legal damages and remedies. Join two dynamic employment attorneys who will offer practical strategies and solutions for dealing with workplace conduct that can lead to legal liability. This session also addresses issues specifically related to elected officials, including online communications, the Public Records Act, and personal liability for intentional torts. Sign-in will begin 30 minutes prior to the session and participants must be present the full two hours to receive a certification of attendance.
 
Be Our Guest
 
Following the host city reception on the first day of the conference, CitiPAC presents the 12th Annual Leadership Reception, hosted by Keenan & Associates. The California Dreamin event will feature food, beverages, music, and entertainment along with the newly opened Unity Center at the California Museum (1020 O Street, Sacramento 95814). The center’s interactive multimedia exhibits highlight leaders in the state’s rich civil rights history and encourage visitors to find common ground while embracing their own individuality. A shuttle schedule will be provided in the conference program.
 
On-Site Registration Is Available
 
While online registration has officially closed, you can still register for the Annual Conference on-site at the Sacramento Convention Center.
