2016 Day at the Capitol


Government Relations & Membership Town Hall Meeting Recap

The California Independent Oil Marketers Association kick-started the New Year by hosting a Government Relations (GR) Meeting and our first-ever Membership Town Hall Meeting, held at The Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento on Wednesday, January 13, 2016.


The GR Meeting focused on CIOMA’s 2015 accomplishments. Members provided input on the design of CIOMA’s 2016 legislative and regulatory agenda as well as provided perspectives on challenges the industry faces for the coming year.


The emphasis and primary focus of the Town Hall Meeting was the newly adopted Membership Strategic Plan. This strategic plan focuses on teaching members, both new and old, how to maximize the benefits that come with being a CIOMA member. Additionally, a newly developed Membership Engagement Toolkit was provided to the members, which will assist them in achieving our new goals. Town Hall attendees also gathered together to share ideas and provide input on membership recruitment and retention strategies for CIOMA.


Membership Chair, Marla Carlson, highlighted the important array of preferred vendors with whom CIOMA has strategic alliances that offer cost-savings benefits to all CIOMA members.


Following the GR & Membership Town Hall Meetings, CIOMA hosted a Legislator Reception for a small group of key legislators and CIOMA attendees.


2016 Day at the Capitol

This year's Day at the Capitol, held in Sacramento on March 16, is quickly approaching!


Day at the Capitol provides participants the opportunity to learn about the legislative process, meet with legislators and staff face-to-face, and have a direct impact in the process. This is also an excellent opportunity to forge relationships with legislators which can provide long-lasting benefits beyond this single day. Many members plan to have or have had follow-up meetings with their legislator in their district.


Registration will open soon. Make plans now to attend!
