Message from the Chair
By Alexander M. Calero
Alexander M. Calero is a senior counsel at the California Department of Business Oversight and the 2019-2020 Chair of the Public Law Section Executive Committee.
I hope this message finds you and your families safe and healthy. As the uncertainty around COVID-19 continues into the Summer of 2020, the Public Law Section of the California Lawyer’s Association (CLA) continues to work on finding creative ways to meet the needs of our members.
Due to COVID-19, we moved our Open Meetings and Open Records Conference online in May 2020 to bring our members top-quality educational topics without leaving home. Our conference marked the CLA’s first attempt at hosting a digital conference. We had five days of content, totaling 8 sessions, with 123 people registered for the full conference and 173 people registered for individual sessions.
