Our Sacramento Summit will begin with a private no-host dinner at the legendary Frank Fats Restaurant with three leading voices for working Californians and employers in the State Capitol, State Senator Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga), Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Corona), and retired State Senator Bill Emmerson (R-Corona), who now serves as Senior Vice President of the California Hospital Association.
The Legislative Welcome Dinner will offer you a rare opportunity to spend social time with some of the Inland Empire and California's leaders on issues as diverse as business regulation, public safety, health care, and critical infrastructure like hospitals.
Here are the background of each of our guests.

Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez
Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez represents portions of the very southern end of Corona in the State Assembly where she has served as the Vice-Chair of the Public Safety committee. She is a very strong leader for business and employment in California and has been working diligently to restore many of the common sense legal protections businesses relied on to protect themselves and their customers from crime before the passage of Prop 47.
Here is Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez's official biography.
Senator Bill Emmerson (Retired)
Senator Bill Emmerson (retired) served as a leading voice for employers, workers, and residents of the Inland Empire before leaving the Legislature to serve as the chief voice for California's hospitals in the State Capitol as Senior Vice President of the California Hospital Association. In his current position, Senator Emmerson is often sought out for his expertise and insight into the critical issues for increasing the quality of health care available to all Californians.
