This session is designed for analysts that are new or at an intermediate level within the LAFCo world. You will be encouraged to exchange ideas, go beyond the introductory phase and step into analyzing commission proceedings. We will review project management best practices, applicability and undertaking the infrequent commission initiated proposals with the idea of avoiding pitfalls and missteps. Let’s level up and put a capital “a” in “analyst". Moderator: Paula Graf, Analyst, Imperial LAFCo. Speakers: Gavin Centeno, Policy Analyst, Orange LAFCo; Brendon Freeman, Executive Officer, Napa LAFCo; Paula de Sousa Mills, Partner, Best Best & Krieger; Joe Serrano, Executive Officer, Santa Cruz LAFCo.
