Limo Fire To Be On Agenda Of GCLA Meeting Next Week

Posted on May 8, 2013

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- The Greater California Livery Association convenes for its last meeting before a summer hiatus on Tuesday, May 14, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., at the Hotel Maya in Long Beach.

The agenda will include a brief update on the regulatory and legislative fallout from the tragic San Francisco limousine fire on May 4. Since the accident, GCLA President Mark Stewart and industry leaders in California have been beseiged with media requests and questions, as some state politicians are calling for more safety regulations.

But the main agenda items will be new developments in SPAB/PAB certification rules for chauffeuring school pupils; latest news from the California Public Utilities Commission; and a special guest speaker, Andi Gray, founder of Strategy Leaders which helps owners of established, privately held businesses achieve growth, profit, stability, predictability and peace of mind. Its formula helps businesses set goals and attain them, and figures out what factors are holding a company back and how it can move forward.

The next GCLA meeting after the May 14 event will be its annual Vehicle Expo in September.
