Board meeting report – Club membership will be asked to consider some upcoming changes regarding Club budget strategy and our weekly meeting venue. Input following last week’s meeting was helpful to me, and I will be looking for Board direction at our meeting of March 16th.
- Reinstate missed meeting fee in a yet to be determined format. Many corporate supported members have no problem with this funding method as their company is paying and not them individually. It has been suggested that if a member does not make at least one meeting per month (including our previous makeup system (another club meeting or Rotary event)), that they be charged $50 for that month. [Gary Frush’s table]
- Raise meeting fee $3 per meeting with a cash/SGCC member discount of $3. [Susanne and John Huebel]
- Raise annual fee above the current $300 to cover these expenses. [Board]
- Redesign annual fundraisers in compliance with CA tax and raffle laws to provide budget relief. The $30,000 Ann mentioned was a combination of funds raised to benefit the annual budget, SRE, and RF. This year’s budget number to support our budget was $10,000. Colleen suggested and a committee is working on a wine food pairing event to raise a portion of this amount, but I expect to be short on this goal. The proceeds of this event over costs will be the profit for the Club’s budget. Silent auction items can be added to enhance this bottom line, but Louis can tell us if this can be allowed. [Board]

Program: Ninfa Herrera: Home Instead Stockton – Advances in senior in-home care
Introduced By: Past president Melanie Vieux
Served our San Joaquin County community for many years as an EMT, Volunteer Fire Fighter, Senior Care Activities Supervisor, Senior Care Client Coordinator, and now as a private In-Home Care provider. Ninfa provided a handout to every table outlining what she has learned to be important in ‘finding the right care’ for ourselves and our loved ones. She used examples of her clients and what they felt was important to them in being cared for currently. The primary reason for her to be in private practice was she understands that her clients want family and one provider versus the model used by many agencies that provide this service.
Liz Hull, Chris Papas, Dr. Walt Wager, Bill Smith, and others had various questions for Ninfa. She stressed that client prefer one care person. She agreed that there are not enough providers of these services. The cost per hour is about her rate of $36. Contracts between providers and client usually spelled out the responsible party in paying taxes and other costs. A notable CPA suggested that anyone interested in these services should contact their accountant to receive advice on these matters.
Tori Verber Salazar
Tori Verber Salazar has brought national attention to the work being done at the San Joaquin County’s District Attorney Office. She rose through the ranks prosecuting gang related homicides to become the first woman District Attorney elected to the office in 2015. She has since instituted sweeping reform and innovation in prosecution for the County, which supports a population of over 780,000 residents. In her capacity, she oversees a budget of $52 million and a team of over 300 team members who work to ensure justice is equitable for all.
Through her leadership, Verber Salazar has implemented office-wide changes including expansion of Victim-Witness services, establishment of the Family Justice Center (expanding services into multiple cities within the county), and creation of the first Political Integrity Unit dedicated to prosecution of corruption cases – which has led to the successful prosecution of elected or appointed officials for misuse of the public trust.
She is a leader in restoring justice through record clearance and giving people an opportunity to seek employment,housing, and education. She has addressed the racial inequities in the past implementation of the criminal justicesystem and has workedto restore trust in our community by apologizing and accepting responsibility. She has worked collaboratively with thecommunity to strengthen trust, accountability, and healing
Verber Salazar is recognized as a leader in the national dialogue in regard to Officer Involved Critical Incidents and piloting the first District Attorney led restorative justice program in the state of California. Through her innovation, many Counties across the Country look to her policies and practices. She has conducted extensive work with the Stanford School of Law in pioneering substantive changes as to how officer involved fatalities are investigated and prosecuted, which was the foundation for groundbreaking legislation in AB 1506. Her pursuit for equitable justice for all often includes second-chance programming for low-level offenders through the Project Navigate Constructive Change diversion program and collaborative courts. This unique partnership initiated an open dialogue with the community she serves and has been transformative for San Joaquin County.
She is married with three children
