BOARD MEMBERSHIP: IMPROVE YOUR LIFE, CAREER, AND COMMUNITY
On June 16, join sf.citi for our next virtual event, Board Leadership 101: Make an Impact in Your Community, and learn about the many benefits of becoming a nonprofit board member. As the desire to do more than volunteer and donate increases, joining a nonprofit board can offer you a remote-friendly, hands-on, and long-term way to improve and give back to the community. Begin your board membership journey and hear from a panel of experienced nonprofit board members on how they became board members and what type of impact they’ve made.
CITY ATTORNEY DAVID CHIU OUTLINES HIS NEW RESPONSIBILITIES
sf.citi continued our 2022 Lunch and Learn discussion series with San Francisco City Attorney David Chiu. We were joined by sf.citi members Airbnb, Comcast, Goodcover, Google, Intuit, Meta, Microsoft, Okta, Pinterest, Twitter, Verizon, Waymo, Zoox, and more.
In Chiu’s fourth sf.citi Lunch and Learn—but first, as City Attorney—he discussed the focus of his new office and the outsized role it plays as the state’s largest city attorney’s office. City Attorney Chiu focused on government corruption, the housing and homelessness crisis, street conditions, climate change, civil rights, and consumer protection over his first few months. But those issues area can quickly change, noted Chiu, who said his office is prepared to act as the front line of defense if imminent changes to issues such as abortion rights, gun control, and data privacy occur.
T-5 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY IN SAN FRANCISCO
Whether you plan to take a last-minute approach to vote by mail or you prefer to vote in person, take the time to prepare for the election and vote all the way down the ballot. It’s a packed ballot as San Francisco voters must contend with numerous statewide primary races and eight local ballot measures, including wonky subject matter like behested payments, building inspection oversight, and garbage rate-setting. We understand that voting can be overwhelming, but we already did the heavy lifting for you in our June 2022 Voter Guide, providing easy-to-digest explanations and recommendations for all eight local ballot measures.
