Through education, we can build a comprehensive understanding of our profession with our elected leaders and promote policy that will protect the safety and interests of those we serve.

Who should participate?
This one-day FREE event for CALBO Members, whether you are the government affairs novice or an active politico.


Building Officials Leadership Academy

California Building Officials Training Institute will hold the 2024-25 Building Officials Leadership Academy (BOLA) from May 13-17, 2024 in Sacramento.

Seeking to maximize the leadership capabilities of seasoned public safety professionals, in addition to those who seek a future within California’s building departments, BOLA provides executive-level coursework along with networking opportunities among program peers and mentors to allow each participant the opportunity to utilize the program to its full potential.

The BOLA core curriculum consists of five training days. In addition, all BOLA participants are required to complete three elective courses offered at the CALBO Education Weeks. After a participant completes all BOLA requirements, he or she will be recognized and honored at the CALBO Annual Business Meeting.

The Academy is at capacity.
