The LACAA Board of Directors is recommending several amendments to the Association's Bylaws. These recommendations were drafted and considered by a specially convened sub-committee that has worked for several years to address the changing duties of the Association. These recommendations were brought to the full Board and over the last several months have been discussed and fine-tuned with the suggestions from Board members and attorneys associated with the Mastagni Law Firm.

Health Care Committee: Several members have expressed concerns regarding their health benefits and ongoing issues with coverage. To address these and other matters, we are forming a committee to survey our members' experiences and to explore recommendations for improving our health coverage. For those interested, please contact Elise Ruden at for further information.

As you know, our new MOU includes annual reimbursement for MCLE-related expenses. To ensure that you receive complete and timely reimbursement, we encourage you to follow the instructions contained in the MCLE protocol provided by City Attorney Management. You must complete and submit a reimbursement form in order to receive reimbursement.

You can reimburse expenses related to attending MCLE programs that are accepted by the California State Bar, even if the program takes place in another state. Eligible expenses include the cost of the program, travel, and per diems.

Please be judicious when choosing lodging and which food/drink expenses you submit for reimbursement.

The Board is pleased to announce that LACAA has retained the law firm of MASTAGNI, HOLSTEDT, AMICK, MILLER & JOHNSEN as General Counsel.
