Complying with California’s Consumer Privacy Act

Jan. 1, 2020 marked the beginning of a new era in consumer protection as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) took effect. The CCPA has brought sweeping changes to how companies are allowed to market and store data, in addition to many compliance challenges.

To help our members meet this challenge, we’ve enlisted attorney Peter Stockburger from the law firm Dentons LLP to take us through a deep dive of the new law.

This webinar took place Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2020, but is now available to view for those of you who may have missed this session.

From CGA President and CEO Ron Fong:

It is with sincere regret and deep sadness that I inform you of the passing of former CGA Chair and long-time independent grocer Bob Parriott, Twain Harte Market, who tragically died in a small aircraft accident February 5, 2020, near the Columbia, Calif. airport.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Linda, their children and grandchildren.

Details of the accident are limited, but it appears Bob and the pilot were the plane’s only occupants and both died in the crash. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating the crash.

Bob was instrumental in the merger of the California Independent Grocers Association with CGA in 2014 and served on the CGA Board of Directors Executive Committee – culminating with his year as Chair in 2018.

Bob was a true champion for the independent grocer which was reflected in his life and his work. He was a tremendous supporter of the Association and will be remembered for his leadership during the merger and his time on the Board.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

On Wednesday, CGA CEO and President Ron Fong was a featured panelist during the Rising Tides 2020 summit at the state capitol. The two-day policy discussion was put together by Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood) and focused on economic security issues.

Fong was one of four panelists selected to participate in a session titled, “What do Workers Need? Critical Roles for Unions and Companies in the New Economy.” The panel was moderated by Assemblymember Mike Gipson (D-Carson) and also include Rana Sarkar, Consul General of Canada; Jeni Chih, Senior Director of Global Benefits for Gap, Inc.; and Tia Orr, Director of Government Affairs at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

With multiple legislators in attendance, alongside many other policy influencers, the summit was the perfect venue to place California’s grocery community and its unique qualities front-and-center for lawmakers.

In one particular highlight from the discussion, the CGA CEO shared how thinking around how to help workers adapt should start with the state’s housing crisis.

“I think affordable housing has become an issue,” Fong said. “We’re still building new stores in our communities. When we open a new store, we tend to hire within. The issue lately that has been identified is: Can we draw from our own community because they can afford to live there?”
