I serve on permanent panels for AT&T and Communications Workers, California State University and California Faculty Association, University of California and UPTE-CWA, San Francisco and IFPTE, Associated General Contractors and Laborers, County of Santa Clara and Registered Nurses Professional Association, and Firefighters and State of California, among others.
