California Implements Nation-Leading Vaccine Verification Measure for Large Events
Today, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) strengthened requirements already in effect for mega-events in the Beyond the Blueprint Framework, announcing that proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours before an event starts, will be required for indoor gatherings where 1,000 or more participants or spectators are attending. Currently, verification of being vaccinated or a pre-entry negative test is necessary where there are 5,000 or more persons for an indoor event.
Beyond dropping the requirement from 5,000 to 1,000 individuals, self-attestation to verify a person’s vaccination status will no longer be accepted. The aforementioned changes will remain in place until November 1, 2021.
California's Rules for Overtime, Makeup Time,

How well do you know California’s wage and hour rules for paying nonexempt employees when it comes to overtime, makeup time, and reporting time pay? It’s important to understand your legal requirements to avoid violations and wage-theft lawsuits.

Keep in mind that California law requires employers to pay overtime, whether authorized or not. Makeup time pay is not a substitute for overtime but does allow an employee who needs to leave early one day to “make up” that time on another day in the same week. Reporting time pay ensures employees receive a minimum amount of pay when they report for their shift but are not put to work or sent home early.

Don’t miss the FREE 60-minute webinar on August 20, 2021. You’ll learn what you need to know — directly from the California Labor Commissioner’s Office which investigates allegations of illegal and unfair business practices and helps level the playing field for law-abiding employers.
Registration is required to attend. This is a first come, first served event. Even with a confirmed registration, we recommend signing in before the start of the 10 a.m. live webinar. We hope you’ll join us!
Anaheim Hills Rotary Presents A Field of Honor
Recognizing HEROES is a tradition that our community and country have done since its founding.

The Rotary Club of Anaheim Hills understands the importance of honoring those whose deeds and sacrifices not be forgotten. What better way to honor our HEROES than by displaying the Stars & Stripes wherein their heroism emerges as part of the flag's meaning.

Two hundred US flags will stand in solemn formation at Eucalyptus Park in Anaheim Hills to honor those HEROES on two occasions in 2021. Once to honor those who lost their lives on the 20th anniversary of the attack of September 11, and the other on Veterans Day in November, honoring those who served our country. The flags will fly for 3-4 days so visitors can walk through the field to read and appreciate the posted dedications attached to each flag. 

By sponsoring one or more flags you can honor any HERO in your life, First Responder, Member of the Military, past and present, a Family member, or anyone who has had a positive impact on your life.

Creating Content to Drive Website Traffic by Steve Pitchford
Wednesday, August 25th | 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM PDT
If you are trying to grow your business in this age of digital transformation, you’re most likely challenged with creating good, quality content for your website. Many small and mid-sized companies produce content that doesn’t get seen on the search engines, nor shared on social media platforms. After investing so much time generating the content, this can be frustrating and unproductive. 
Steve Pitchford will present this workshop to help you get a better understanding of what it takes to create good, quality content that drives traffic to your website and that also generates more social shares of that content. There are three entities to keep in mind while you’re planning and writing content; your brand, your audience, and the search engines. So we will be taking inventory of what industry experts teach on these topics, as well as provide insights into what Google’s Search Quality Guidelines say about it. 

Topics to be covered include:
  • Why is content so important to your brand, your audience and Google?
  • What types of content drives website traffic and social shares?
  • We break down the types of content important to your brand, audience and Google
  • How to build great website content
  • Tools for selecting topics, content types and competitive research
  • Basics for doing a brand inventory and website content audit
  • Google’s guidance on building high-quality websites 

Steve Pitchford presents this workshop.  Steve Pitchford has been helping businesses grow with lead generation services since 1991. Today Steve runs his own SEO agency with a passion for helping small and medium-sized businesses understand their website performance better. With the significant amount of data that Google Analytics provides, profitable insights can be gleaned that lead to traffic growth and higher profits.
