    Mixing Business with Pleasure a Good Thing

    The first two Dinner Meetings of the California Sign Association fiscal year offered the opportunity to exercise mental muscles, and other muscles. Education seminars followed by rousing dinner activities took place in Anaheim on November 4th, followed by Livermore, in northern California on the 13th.

    Both dinner events were open to members and prospective members, kicking off with a two hour presentation by U.L. Engineers, 3:30pm – 5:30pm. The engineers conducted a well-attended training session on the new Retrofitting rules and regulations. They were able to explain in detail what is being required by U.L. to properly retrofit a listed sign with new LED components in the field.

    Attendees who also registered for the dinner event that followed then shared a delicious dinner with a healthy side of networking. In Anaheim, CSA hosted a terrific speaker, Lisa Reid. Reid is a presenter with Productive Learning – a unique personal growth company.

    With a background in teaching, management, business ownership and executive leadership, Leisa now helps clients create and live the life they intended to create.

    During this session, some eye-opening exercises revealed inner wants, fears, and growth-inhibiting subconscious thoughts experienced by virtually every guest in attendance.

For those who had never played this indoor sport before, an instructor was provided by the facility. This seminar/dinner event took place at Campo De Bocce– a wonderful venue that is both a restaurant with meeting rooms and a Bocce Ball Arena, with four indoor and four outdoor courts. U.L. Engineer Shari Hunter on court two and Director Emeritus Mark Gastineau on court one were our resident pros. A great time was had by all!
