CALBO’s Annual Leadership & Advocacy Day


A one-day event for all Class I Members of California Building Officials. Click Here to Register

What is Leadership & Advocacy Day?

Leadership & Advocacy Day participants will be briefed by CALBO’s Advocacy Team in the morning, covering all topics and questions relative to our activities at the State Capitol. Following lunch, participants will take the short walk to the State Capitol for pre-arranged meetings with the State Legislators that represent your jurisdiction. By meeting with the Senators and Assembly members that represent your jurisdiction, you are showcasing the work of your local building department, while forging relationships that can benefit your community. You will also have the opportunity to represent CALBO, promoting the best interests of local building departments and our membership. 

Why participate?

Formal lobbying is more than just advocating for favorable outcomes; it is about educating those who make decisions that affect us. 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 event has been designed for all Class I members of CALBO, whether you are the government affairs novice or an active politico.
