    Next week we look forward to welcoming almost 100 leaders from the commercial, industrial, and retail real estate industry to Sacramento for the California Commercial Real Estate Summit (CCRES).  Commonly referred to as “Commercial Real Estate Day in the Capitol,” this event is the one time of year that all sectors of industry converge on California’s Capitol to meet with policymakers about issues impacting your business.

    This year participants are scheduled to meet with two statewide Constitutional Officers (State Treasurer John Chiang and Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones. As well, our leadership have meeting scheduled with almost half of the Legislature several high-level staff from Governor Brown’s Administration, including 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.

    This year we will be advocating in support of a specific range of measures that will impact commercial buildings including measures that increase accessibility while reducing frivolous lawsuits (SB 251), direct additional funds to the California Commission on Disability Access and increase the use of California Certified Access Specialists CASp (AB 1342), reform training and liability protections for properties that install Automated External Defibrillators (SB 658), and increase funds available for energy efficiency upgrades through Property Assessed Clean Energy Reserve Program (AB 450).

    If you know someone that is taking time out of their busy schedule to come to Sacramento to advocate on YOUR behalf, please thank them!
