Welcome Message from Your CALBO President – Jeff Janes
2018-2019 CALBO President's Welcome Message

Dear CALBO Community,

It is always a pleasure to meet with you in person, and I’ve enjoyed having the opportunity to travel throughout the state and get to know the many faces of CALBO.  As your 2018-19 President, I want to assure you that the Board will continue to add value to membership through legislative engagement, training, relevant forms and toolkits for our everyday, hard-working building departments throughout the state.  Over the last several years, the Board looked to our strategic plan while also listening to our membership about what is important to them… and this year will be no different.  We have heard some great suggestions from our members at CALBO membership forums and will be folding those into the Board’s vision moving forward.


Thank you to the following CALBO Members for your contributions to our industry.
It is with great pride that we announce the 2017-18 CALBO Award winners.
