CALBO’s 58th Annual Business Meeting – BOLA Graduation Luncheon


California Building Officials’ leadership program, Building Officials Leadership Academy (BOLA), is designed to maximize the leadership capabilities of seasoned public-safety professionals, in addition to those who seek future within California’s building departments. 

The Executive level coursework of the BOLA program is intensive. In addition to the BOLA core curriculum that consist of five consistent days of training, mentorship and networking, all BOLA students are required to complete three elective courses offered at the CALBO Education Weeks each year. 

BOLA participants will become an active part of the network of program peers who can utilize each other’s talents and strengths. To assist and provide advice and guidance, BOLA participants are also assigned a mentor to serve as an overall resource. 

We hope you will join us to celebrate the achievements of the BOLA Class of 2019-20 at the BOLA Graduation Luncheon. We are proud to honor these new additions to the BOLA alumni network that continues to grow each year.   

Congratulations BOLA Graduates!
