Gain the Resilience Advantage – New Webinar Next Week
Free Webinar Series Offered by Optimum Seismic

We’re seeing the severe economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Imagine how much worse it could be if a major earthquake hit California’s urban areas.

The human toll in terms of deaths and injuries could be staggering. Collapsed buildings and infrastructure could take years – even decades – to fully replace. Much of our housing could be destroyed. Many businesses would likely never reopen.

For a year of challenge and change, thank you CALBO for taking the lead

Dear Friend of CALBO,

Now I realize, you’ve heard a lot from me lately. Maybe a little too much, but much like you, this was my effort to lead as your CALBO President through a time of change and adversity. And with that – we did it.  You did it.  CALBO did it. As we enter into a new year with still some uncertainty at hand, I want to say – thank you.
