    This week the annual California Commercial Real Estate Summit (CCRES) was held in Sacramento and attended by over 80 real estate leaders who converged on California’s Capitol to advocate on behalf of the commercial, retail, and industrial real estate industry.  Seventeen “teams” of advocates met with almost half of the state Legislature.

    The focus of this year’s CCRES was support for a number of bills that reform our state’s ADA laws as well as support for a measure that would fund energy efficiency PACE programs and a measure to reform the AED statutes.

    However, we also pressed hard to support Proposition 13 and oppose a recent call by public employee unions to move forward with a proposal to create a split roll property tax.

    We were also pleased to present our 2015 Legislators of the Year award to Assemblymember Ken Cooley (D-Sacramento) and Senator Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield).

    Delegates also heard from two statewide Constitutional Officers (State Treasurer John Chiang and Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones.  As well as Governor Brown’s Secretary for Natural Resources John Laird.

    The goal of the California Commercial Real Estate Summit is to increase public policy and political awareness of state issues impacting commercial, industrial, and retail real estate, and to foster collaborative efforts among business leaders from all sectors of California and their representatives in the State Legislature.

    We would like to thank all of our Members who took the time to attend the CCRES!
