so plan now to come to the annual general membership meeting.

Annual Dues is now $20.00/member. Each member is entitled to one vote at elections.

Long Beach's Community Emergency Notification System:
Just a reminder… Long Beach has a Community Emergency Notification System that allows the City's 9-1-1 Emergency Communications Center to rapidly notify residents and businesses by telephone of an emergency affecting their neighborhood or region of the city. This Reverse 9-1-1 system will automatically call listed and unlisted telephone numbers within the affected area and deliver the recorded message. If you have a landline phone within Long Beach, you do not need to sign up, as that phone number is already on the list, but if you would like to have your cellular phone or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) added, please click here to create an account.

Based on this information, the permits that have been issued are not valid. Please do not use them in the Beach lots as citations will be issued. Regular parking on Ocean Boulevard will resume later this afternoon once all signs have been removed and the regular street sweeping schedule will resume next week.
