Dear LACMC Members:

The LACMC Executive Council directed the review and updating of our bylaws to provide a better governance structure for LACMC. The bylaws had not been significantly reviewed for many years. Many changes were made to comport with current best practices for membership organizations. As you will see, the bylaws provide more guidance on how LACMC should operate, providing more clarity regarding membership, actions/requirements of the executive council, responsibilities of officers, committees, and liability. The LACMC executive council believes these amendments are a positive move in strengthening and growing our organization. We hope you will agree, and vote in favor of these bylaw amendments when the vote is called.

Management Council Members,

In response to the Board’s declaration of emergency concerning the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as the state and federal mandates, the LACMC Executive Committee voted to postpone the LACMC Spring Conference 2020 on April 30 through May 1 in Indian Wells, CA.

Instead, we have rescheduled the Conference to Thursday, November 5 and Friday, November 6, 2020. The Hyatt Regency at Indian Wells Resort and Spa have been gracious to provide us with a first-choice date. For those who have already submitted registration, you will receive a refund.

We thank you for supporting the Management Council and look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Conference in November. Please stay tuned for subsequent communication coming your way regarding registration.

LACMC President,

Ruth A. Wong
