The guest speaker this month will be Ashley Hoffman from the California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber), a not-for-profit business advocate and HR compliance resource for California employers. CalChamber is the largest, broad-based business advocate to government in California, working at state and federal levels to influence government actions affecting all California businesses. Ashley will discuss AB 257, a CalChamber-opposed bill that will increase prices at counter-served restaurants and further burden working families. This legislation applies to a diverse industry and includes coffee shops, ice cream parlors, salad bars, taquerias, delis, pizzerias, bakeries, burger houses, and other fast-food and quick-service restaurants.
This meeting is chaired by South County Chambers of Commerce Board Director, Marshall Brown with Farmers Insurance.
All local businesses are encouraged to attend. If you would like to join the Chamber, please click here for more information, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The South County Chambers of Commerce recognizes the necessity of properly balanced legislation for enhancement and encouragement of the free enterprise system. In conjunction with our stated goals, SCCC supports legislation at all levels of government which insures a sound and healthy local economy. When necessary, we will vigorously oppose legislation that threatens the viability of local business as part of the private enterprise system. SCCC encourages a proactive approach to local legislation and supports research, analysis, education, and wide dissemination of proposed legislation that affects local business and the vitality of South SLO County.
