Valuable training on Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations and exciting basketball action were on display during the ARA of California’s April 5 event.
The event kicked off at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento with Kristi McNabb, officer with the California Highway Patrol, discussing the latest DOT regulations. Members were able to ask questions on everything from the proper way to tie down equipment to updates on regulations.
After the training, attendees cheered on the Sacramento Kings from the arena’s luxury suite. Even though the Kings lost to the New Orleans Pelicans, participants enjoyed plenty of networking while taking advantage of delicious food and an open bar, thanks to ARA Insurance and ARA Insurance agency Robert Bell Insurance Brokers.
“It was so wonderful to be together again. Everyone learned a lot from the DOT presentation and was able to bring important information back to their businesses. Then we had a great time in the suite — the first time the ARA of California has offered a basketball event. We are so grateful to ARA Insurance and ARA Insurance Preferred Agent Michael Bell for their support and willingness to be there to answer questions that members had. In addition, James Auerbach, ARA’s vice president, event segment and workforce development, joined us. It was great to talk with him and learn even more about all the resources ARA offers all of us,” says Jared Medaris, CERP, president, Expo Party Rentals, Fresno, and ARA of California president.
