    CSA Members Meet, Tour, & Explore in January

    Board Meeting on January 18th STEPS and More

    January 18th, the CSA Board of Directors met in Sacramento, for a regularly scheduled board meeting; in attendance were 16 of the 26 directors as well as two of our active Directors Emeritus. The subject matter addressed at the meeting included standing committees (Government Affairs, Education, Communication, Technical, Professionalism and Membership) updates to the board, the CSA Sign Training & Education Program Series (STEPS) and Crane Operator Certification program, as well as additional activities by staff.

    After the board meeting, 28 folks took a Behind the Scenes tour of Golden 1 Center, an absolutely beautiful environmentally friendly facility and home of the Sacramento Kings basketball team. As an extra touch, CSA member Ryan Drury, Pacific Neon Company was able to elaborate on the six iconic neon sign exhibition in the southeast corner of the arena’s plaza level concourse; Pacific Neon refurbished the signs while preserving their historic integrity and Golden Gate Sign Company, also a CSA member, installed the signs. Golden 1 Center is the world’s first arena to be 100% solar powered and achieve the US Green Building Council’s LEED Platinum status. An unmatched food program sources 90% of the venues ingredients within 150 miles of the venue and Golden 1 Center has partnered with local food banks to distribute overstock food items to the community. In addition, they work with a local, innovative organics program which develops fertilizers for the farms that serve the arena.

    Following the tour, thirty people then sat down for a wonderful dinner and camaraderie at the Holiday Inn Sacramento Downtown, with a presentation by CSA Legal Counsel, Jeff Aran, bringing those in attendance up to speed on recent legislation and new labor regulations affecting the sign industry and California business owners.
