2018 ANNUAL REPORT 25 We are here to Inform and Serve the Public Educational seminars are part of our ongoing efforts to expand public participation and provide valuable information to taxpayers. Thousands have attended Assessor Resource Seminars, which kicked off in the San Gabriel Valley and have continued throughout the County. Experienced and knowledgeable speakers provide detailed information about Proposition 13, assessment of new construction, and exemptions and exclusions that serve as tax-saving opportunities. Question-and-answer sessions have been lively, informative, and helpful to the public seeking answers to property questions. A full schedule of educational seminars provides added opportunities for the public at convenient locations throughout Los Angeles County.
