San Diego — To cap off its trifecta of springtime operator meetings, The Greater California Livery Association (GCLA) will be heading to Green Flash Brewing Company in San Diego June 13.
Attendees will be treated to dinner, plenty of networking opportunities, and education pertaining to both the San Diego region and statewide operations. There will also be vehicles on display, courtesy of Mercedes-Benz of San Diego and Zeeba Vans.
Airports have become a battleground of sorts as operators’ fight TNCs for both visibility and parity, and updates both from the San Diego International Airport’s Director of Ground Transportation Marc Nichols and about major changes coming to Los Angeles International Airport will be part of the evening meeting’s educational agenda. Nichols will be on hand to provide an update on the current state and new developments at the San Diego airport as they relate to our industry, while the LAX update will include pictures and maps clarifying the September 1 changes to the airport’s TNC and livery operations.
The association has continued its legislative and lobbying efforts at the state capital, which will be presented by the chairman of GCLA’s legislative committee Mark Stewart of CLI Worldwide. Stewart will discuss two pieces of proposed must-watch legislation for 2019, SB-625 (regarding passengers’ use of cannabis products in commercial vehicles) and AB-5 (regarding the Supreme Court ruling of the Dynamex case of worker classification).
The San Diego operator meeting will run from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., and pre-registration will be $40 for members and $50 for non-members (the on-site cost will be $50 for members and $60 for non-members). Attendees who have not yet RSVP’s can do so here.
The next round of GCLA meetings will begin with its SoCal operator meeting September 17.
