As described in my earlier post here, the California Legislature adopted Assembly Bill 54 effective January 1, 2012, with consequences for mutual water companies that operate public water systems. Importantly, AB 54 requires all mutual water company directors to attend a 2-hour training course covering their duties as directors and the laws and regulations applicable to mutuals before December 31, 2012.
While I do not normally use this blog for commercial purposes, I thought readers might want to know that my law firm, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP, is offering a training course to satisfy all requirements of AB 54. The course will cover the nature of mutual water companies, corporate governance, duties of directors, water rights and water quality regulations.
Because mutual water companies are spread across the state, making travel to a central location impracticable for many directors, the training will be conducted by webinar on the following dates:
- Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 6:00 pm
- Friday, October 12, 2012 at 12:00 pm (noon)
- Thursday, November 8, 2012 at 6:00 pm
- Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 8:00 am
To register for the training, please contact Gina Lane of my firm at 805.882.1470 or email@example.com. Fees are $99 per attendee, with a maximum of $249 per mutual water company. For any other questions, please contact me at 805.882.1490 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
