On July 14, 2016, Harout Harry Semerdjian of California Consulting participated in a Leadership Roundtable with California State Assembly Republican Leader Chad Mayes organized by the Los Angeles County Business Federation (BizFed). The discussion centered around business and public policy issues facing the State of California and its future. Tracy Hernandez, Founding CEO of BizFed, gave an overview of the organization and discussed its annual survey results. The Assembly Minority leader then discussed legislative priorities in Sacramento, going over some of the key challenges currently facing California’s population as well as the business community. This was followed by a dynamic question-answer period with the Assemblymember. The event was informative and provided the opportunity for our new Associate Harout Harry Semerdjian to meet with the Assembly Minority as well as representatives of other member organizations of BizFed.
