The Valley Industry and Commerce Association (VICA) held its annual Business Forecast Conference on Friday, October 26th at the Universal City Hilton.
Alpert Barr & Grant Partner Alexander S. Kasendorf served as moderator for “The Mission Continues,” a panel discussion about California’s ambitious climate goals and its effects on businesses and ratepayers in our region. Panel members included California State Assemblymember Laura Friedman, Attorney Marne Sussman and oil and gas representatives Margita Thompson and Tiffany Roberts.
VICA’s Business Forecast Conference is one of the region’s best policy conferences, as economists, academics, business leaders, elected and government officials, and other attendees have the opportunity to discuss timely business issues in dialogue-generating sessions. This year’s keynote speakers were Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Southern California Gas Company’s Bret Lane.
