2014 Annual Investors Meeting

The theme for the 2014 Annual Investors Meeting: It Starts With Us! As I prepare to turn over the reins to my successor after two years as the Chairman of the Board of Directors, I do so with the confidence that it has started with us: pride in service, pride in business, and pride in Fresno County and its potential for a greater level of economic prosperity than ever.

Al Solis, Chairman
