The April Meeting was a huge success! OCEA was lucky enough to have OC’s newly appointed Clerk/Recorder, Hugh Nguyen, with us. Information officer, Jean Pasco, updated us and shared lots of info from the Clerk/recorder’s office. During the Q&A period, our members were able to ask some “hard” questions and make some suggestions- all of which was very informative and well received by the Clerk/Recorder reps. We may be invited to take a “tour” of the recorder’s office in the near future. Watch for details.
