Meet Your New Supervisor! We are excited to have our new District 3 San Diego County Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer join us to introduce herself and share insight into her policy priorities in her role. After Supervisor Lawson-Remer presents she will be available for audience Q&A, this is a great chance to directly connect with her and share what is important to you as a constituent.
Following Supervisor Lawson-Remer we have a great panel planned to discuss the new updates on AB-5. There have been considerable changes made to AB-5 since it was passed into law a couple of years ago. To help us understand these changes and new exemptions created we have invited a few employment law experts to share what business owners and leaders need to be aware of.
