Welcome to the Central Coast Chapter!


It’s my honor to serve as your 2022 Central Coast Chapter President. This is my second year serving in this capacity for the Central Coast. In addition for 2022, I am serving as the State Board Secretary.

The Central Coast Chapter encompasses Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties. Our members are records professionals from law enforcement sheriffs and municipal agencies, district attorney offices, community colleges, state universities, the courts, state hospitals and park districts. The Central Coast Chapter meets on the second Thursday of every other month.

CLEARS membership offers members the benefit of excellent training, networking opportunities with other records professionals, and access to the legislative process regarding important issues in law enforcement and records management. The connection to years of professional experience through our members is invaluable. The CLEARS association is reputable and well established. Whether you are new to records or well-seasoned in your career, there is always something to learn in this ever-changing profession.

If you are a current or aspiring supervisor in Records, CLEARS is a membership worth its weight in gold and now is the time to join this great family of records professionals. Membership will no doubt provide training and knowledge, in addition to gaining friendship and networking opportunities. I hope you’ll consider attending a meeting to learn more.
