CALBO & ICC Partner for Local Government Leadership
LONG BEACH – CALBO was proud to partner with the International Code Council (ICC) at the League of California Cities annual conference and expo, showcasing a theme of seismic resiliency and local government leadership. CALBO’s Executive Board and Staff joined ICC Government Relations team-members Susan Dowty and Chris Ochoa for the two-day conference held in Long Beach.
League attendees stopped by our booth and had the opportunity to browse the new California codes, in addition to sending personal notes to their building departments and pinning their jurisdiction on a California map. Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (pictured) even visited for a bit discussing his involvement with a new regional transit project.
CALBO has been an exhibitor for nearly 20 years at the League of California Cities in an effort to build connectivity with senior city administration and municipal decision makers. Partnering with ICC bolstered our role and provided both organizations with an opportunity to talk about code development, public safety, innovation, technology and leadership in building departments. Additionally; both organizations were able to highlight our efforts to boost seismic resiliency efforts at local, state and international levels.
CALBO looks forward to partnering with ICC again for the 2020 League of California Cities annual conference and expo, to be held again in Long Beach October 7-8, 2020.
