CALBO’s 60th 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. 

In addition to course work and group projects, BOLA participants 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 2021-22 at the BOLA Graduation Luncheon. We are proud to honor these new additions to the BOLA alumni network that continues to grow each year.
