New Website and CIOMA Update!

If you're a returning visitor, you'll certainly notice some major changes to our website. Some things have been moved, consolidated, and re-vamped in the hopes of making your experience better. If this is your first time to our website we welcome you! This website is still undergoing the last bit of rebuilding, so you should notice more and more content over the next few weeks. We hope to have the site fully completed by the end of February. If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact Colin Alley.

Now for a CIOMA update. We just concluded a series of government affairs "Boot Camps" co-hosted with WSPA. These Boot Camps covered a number of critical and current issues regarding environmental and legislative developments. This information will help prepare our retail and marketer members for the future. We also had guest appearances by Assemblywoman Diane Harkey in Long Beach and Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla in Pleasanton. We're planning a couple more Boot Camps later in the year, so be sure to check the events tab for updates.

Additionally, we co-hosted NACS State of the Industry luncheons in San Diego, Glendale, and Pleasanton. Hank Armour, President and CEO of NACS, updated attendees, including our members, on trends impacting the retail and c-store industry. Key focuses were on category trends, growth, regional trends in fuel consumption, to name a few. We continue our involvement with NACS to help support our retail membership.

We have our annual Day at the Capitol coming up in April. Registration for this event is open and early registration helps us get meetings with the representatives that you want to see. Also coming up is our annual CIOMPAC Destruction Derby. If you have never attended this event, you are missing out!
