Join the California Music and Culture Association (CMAC) for its October City Insider Lunch – and first event in Oakland – with City Councilmember At-Large and mayoral candidate Rebecca Kaplan. From the revitalization of the iconic Fox Theatre to the proliferation of new nightclubs and music venues in the Uptown and Jack London districts, Oakland is experiencing a cultural and art renaissance. Talk with Councilmember Kaplan for an update of what’s next for Oakland.

Meet Rebecca
Rebecca is the at-large representative of Oakland’s City Council. Prior to assuming office in January 2009, she represented Alameda and Contra Costa Counties on the AC Transit Board of Directors from 2002 to 2008. She earned a Bachelor of Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and was awarded the Phi Beta Kappa academic honor. She holds a Master of Arts in Urban & Environmental Policy from Tufts University and a Juris Doctorate from Stanford Law School. A dual citizen born in Toronto, Canada, Rebecca has made Oakland her home for the past two decades. 

In April 2010, Rebecca and Councilmember Nancy Nadel introduced legislation to amend Oakland’s cabaret ordinance to remove antiquated language. The ordinance, which was passed unanimously, was a victory not just for Oakland’s nightlife and economy, but also for the Bay Area’s entertainment community.

What is CMAC?
The California Music and Culture Association (CMAC) is a 501(c)(6) trade association of venue owners and operators, industry professionals, artists, and fans of the industry dedicated to the preservation and enrichment of music and culture in the state of California. Launched in May 2010 to fill a void in the political and media dialogues surounding music, culture, and nightlife, CMAC supports safe entertainment through advocacy, education efforts, and collaboration with law enforcement, government agencies, and community-based organizations.
