The Greater California Livery Association (GCLA) recently announced that it will be holding its Spring Conference in person at the Orange County Hyatt Regency in Huntington Beach on March 30, 2021 (barring any state restrictions or a sudden spike in COVID rates). The event is sponsored by Cadillac and will be limited to 200 attendees.
The theme of the event is We Move California—LIVE!, which will have a dedicated focus on helping area operators reboot their businesses, regain lost clients, and explore additional revue streams. Of course, networking with fellow members is the ultimate bonus.
According to the announcement on its Facebook page, GCLA is also working on its Fall Expo, which will be held September 14-15 and will include education and an exhibit area. The host property for the two-day event is the Portofino Hotel & Conference Center in Rondondo Beach. Additional details will be shared on the event's page in the coming weeks.
GCLA notes that 70 percent of its 2020 membership renewed for another year in January, in addition to signing up 32 first-time members (great news for our friends in the Golden State!). California has been hit particularly hard in the recent months with several waves of local and state restrictions and the passage of Proposition 22, which carved out an exception to labor laws (ICs versus employees) for the app-based ridesharing companies.
