April 11, 2017 - LAMAAA IS BACK
After a years-long hiatus, LAMAAA is back again. LAMAAA members held their first monthly educational meeting on April 11, 2017 in the Controller’s Conference Room (CH# 351a). There was a big turnout, with many new members attending. Our current President-elect, Will Newman greeted everyone and briefly explained what LAMAAA is all about and how it will help its members professionally and socially. He also shared Association plans for the coming months. Members Amanda Dyson and Beth Kennedy shared their career experiences and how they achieved their professional goals. The main core of the event was a presentation by Controller Ron Galperin. He discussed the Open Data feature of the Controller's website, which his Office developed. He emphasized the benefits, features, and usefulness of the tool and how it will inform City management, executives, employees, and outside business professionals. We will meet again on May 9, 2017 in the CAO Conference Room on the 13th floor of City Hall East. The guest speaker will be Ted Ross of ITA. Thanks to all our faithful members!
