RPLG Associate Michael Cohen and RPPG Managing Director Dane Hutchings will present “New Law and Election Update and More!” on Thursday, December 8, at the 2022 CalCities City Clerks New Law and Elections Seminar in Monterey.

The City Clerks New Law and Elections Seminar provides topical education and networking opportunities for city clerks and staff members at all levels.

During their presentation, Michael and Dane will share highlights from the previous legislative session; discuss new bills related to elections, records and the Brown Act; and review new Fair Political Practices Commission rules, regulations and requirements. They also will identify best practices and legislative solutions that may be the answer to future challenges of the profession, especially as it relates to meetings, records, elections and voting.

League of California Cities Legislative Representative Johnnie Pina, as well as Chloe Hackert, Education and External Affairs Unit Manager, and Lindsey Nakano, Senior Legislative Counsel, both of the Fair Political Practices Commission, will participate in the panel. The session will be moderated by Temecula Legislative Director Randi Johl, who serves as the City Clerks Department Director for CalCities.

“We are looking forward to our presentation at this year’s Seminar,” said Dane. “Michael and I are excited to share new insights with attendees and provide important updates for city clerks to consider as they continue to strengthen public agencies and their respective communities as a whole.”
