Conference Sessions
 
Each year the Annual Conference Planning Committee carefully reviews over 100 session proposals and selects those that are most relevant and informative to today’s California city official. Here is a selection of some of the sessions you will have the opportunity to attend in Sacramento, Sept. 13 – 15.
 
SB 1: A Funding Fix for California's Roads
 
Senate Bill 1 (Beall) represents landmark infrastructure investment in transportation unseen in a generation. Over the next 10 years, the package will generate $52 billion to repair the state and local transportation network as well as make investments in key transportation programs such as transit, trade corridors, and active transportation. As the money starts to roll out, cities will see significant increases for the local transportation budgets. Listen to the state’s key experts on what SB 1 means for your city and what key provisions to keep in mind to ensure your city’s compliance with the new law.
 
CalPERS: Our Shared Path to a Sustainable System
 
Every four years, CalPERS (California Public Employees’ Retirement System) conducts a 50-year look ahead at long term investment market trends. This session will be a review of the CalPERS Asset Liability Management Process. Discussions focus on actuarial assumptions (birth and death rates), macro-economic data, hire/fire rates for the public sector, and numerous other factors that are used to guide the pension system forward. This process could result in significant changes to the CalPERS asset allocation, assumed rates of return, and ultimately in changes to employer and employee contribution rates.
 
Prop. 64 Grants: Adult Use of Marijuana Act
 
The Board of State and Community Corrections receives an allocation of state excise tax to be distributed to local governments in the form of grants addressing public health and public safety needs associated with Proposition 64 implementation. This panel discusses how local governments can craft a competitive bid for grant monies to assist local agencies in enforcement action related to licensed activities under the law, emergency response related to indoor cultivation and manufacturing activities, as well as marijuana-impaired activities that pose a threat to public safety.
 
Lodging
 
Guest room availability through the League’s hotel room blocks is very limited at this time.  Please secure your lodging for the conference through the housing links you will receive after registering for the conference.
