Karen Conlon from the California Association of Community Managers (CACM) reports that in this most recent legislative session, Senate Bill 294 was introduced for the purpose of consolidating and downsizing the numerous boards, commissions, etc. that exist in California. To protect the CACM manager certification standards in the Business & Professions Codes, CACM asked that the sunset provision in B&P Section 11506 be extended and NOT eliminated as a result of this bill. By doing so, manager certification standards would be preserved. The Senate B&P Committee agreed to this request. Follow this link to see the portion of the bill that reflects the extension of the sunset provision to January 1, 2015 (the sunset provision was originally due to expire January 2012). SB 294 was signed by the Governor and chaptered into law. Congratulations to CACM.
