As part of a Regional Active Transportation Safety and Encouragement Campaign, SCAG is offering an opportunity for communities to host events that inspire more people to walk and bike through education, encouragement and a "neakers-on" experience. For one day or up to one month during May (Bike Month) 2016, SCAG will support local communities in transforming streets through temporary improvements (or pop-ups), street "festivals" and other fun activities that increase awareness of active transportation and complete street concepts. For more information, check out the call for projects application.

The California Debt and Investment Advisory Commission (CDIAC) is hosting a webinar series designed to guide public agencies in the development and management of an investment portfolio. Public fund management in California allows for the investment officer to select instruments set forth in government code. Each investment instrument comes with a differing level of risk, requiring public investors to undertake a full assessment of each. These webinars will examine each instrument type, review the statutory authority, and analyze how the investment’s features may or may not achieve a local agency’s investment policy objectives. The webinar series is as follows:

  • Webinar 1: Treasuries – May 21
  • Webinar 2: Agencies – June 17
  • Webinar 3: Municipals – June 24
  • Webinar 4: Money Markets
    • Part 1: Banker’s Acceptances, Commercial Paper – July 8
    • Part 2: Certificates of Deposit (CDs), Deposit Placement Services and Collateralized Bank Deposits – July 22
