1. Proposed Coalition / City Agreement

A discussion was held regarding whether the LACAA Board should take a position on the proposed Amended LOA.  Because the vote would not be unanimous, Board tabled the vote, on condition that no Board Members speak on behalf of the Board one way or another.

Instead, a list of pros and cons would be created and posted on the LACAA website.

Members from the Coalition of City Unions requested to brief our members on the proposed Amended LOA.   That is scheduled for April 7, 2011 in the Tom Bradley Room, City Hall.

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.
