President's Message

Chris Reynolds, CPI

Dear Members:

This month represents the beginning of the second half of our fiscal year. We are paying close attention to the budget after we learned that State Fund was discontinuing its Safety programs for all statewide associations. This represents a hit to our budget of approximately $110k per year. I am convening a meeting in March with several CALI members to begin developing ideas to trim our budget and increase revenue to cover these significant shortfalls. We have some savings to fall back on in the short term, but using reserves is never a good idea. We may be reaching out to our membership for more ideas as we get closer to firming up a new budget for upcoming year. Click here to read more...

 The Golden Mike Award

Last year, CALI Past President Jay Rosenzweig, who specializes in locating birth parents, helped KTLA Los Angeles Morning News Anchor Chris Schauble find his birth parents. The story was shared with viewers and updated twice monthly for 6 months. Jay was on-air providing updates until Chris was reunited with his biological family. The light news story was so compelling that on Saturday January 24th, it won a Golden Mike Award, which is given out by the Radio and Television News Association of Southern California. The story was also nominated for an Emmy award. Click here to see the photograph...
