A message from the California Committee Chair

Dear Association Members and Friends:

This year’s ANZAC Day Ceremony will be held on Sunday April 25th. It is always a uniting and moving event. The reception following will be hosted this time by the New Zealand Consul General at the Official Residence.


With tax season upon us we recently held our ever popular Tax and Immigration Panel at the Ramada West Hollywood and attracted a full house. Income tax, estate tax and visas are always topics of great interest to both new arrivals and long established Angelinos! Thank you to our expert panelists Alice Yardum-Hunter, Mark Kruspodin, and Pam Meyer. Thank you again to California Committee member Pam Meyer who facilitated the event.


For the advent of spring we have arranged a relaxing and informative family afternoon at the Page Museum (La Brea Tar Pits). We are delighted to announce that Australian paleontologist Dr. John Long will take us on a private tour of the museum on Saturday April 24th and a complimentary boxed lunch will be provided for AAA members thanks to our generous sponsor George Salmas of the Salmas Law Group.


Please save the date for Tuesday, May 25th. Our Association will partner with the LA Area Chamber of Commerce and Microsoft in a forum on Smart + Simple Strategies for Small Business. This interactive, half-day seminar at the Los Angeles Marriott Hotel in downtown Los Angeles will feature a variety of valuable small business sessions session. It promises to be a great entrepreneurial networking opportunity. AAA members will receive the very special member rate of $20 per person which includes continental breakfast, lunch and all sessions! More details will be announced shortly.


I’m delighted to announce we will be launching our Small Business Awards later this year in September. These awards will complement our flagship Business Awards Luncheon which traditionally honor large and established corporations.


As you can see, your California Committee continues to work at providing a diverse and interesting calendar of events for all members. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with your thoughts and suggestions, or if you have an interest in serving on the CA Committee.

Our Regional Director, Dan Levek will be leaving the Association at the end of April for another opportunity.  He has made a valuable contribution to the growth of our organization and his dedication and hard work have been much appreciated.  We wish Dan great success in his new role.
