The theme for the SBCCOG’s 2019 General Assembly was Celebrating the Past – Shaping the Future. Historians reviewed changes in the South Bay since WWII while experts discussed future issues such as:

  • History of the South Bay
  • Changes in demographics, aging, diversity
  • Workforce of the future
  • Civic well-being: coping with change

The 20th Annual General Assembly was held at the Juanita Millender-McDonald Community Center in Carson.
