CALBO Committee Appointments – Postponed to Late Summer

Dear Friend of CALBO,

As you know, our policy committees are the lifeblood of our organization. It’s the greatest way for our members and industry professionals to be a part of our robust organization. We appreciate your interest in CALBO’s policy committees and the CALBO Board of Directors takes their membership and committee appointments quite seriously.

Like many of us, the pandemic took its toll upon many of our traditional operations and functions. Our policy committees have not been insulated from the struggles of remote meetings, increased professional demands, in addition to supply-chain and labor shortages.  We recognize that our policy committees need to be “re-tooled” and “re-vamped” a bit, so with that, the CALBO Board of Directors are going to look at all eleven committees of them ensure that they are meeting the needs of our members and organization.  

If you are currently involved with a CALBO policy committee as a committee member, thank you. We ask that you continue to operate as you are able and willing, and once current appointments, membership and organizational directives are updated and enhanced, we will be in touch. We hope to have greater direction and reappointments in place by the end of the summer.

We appreciate your patience, in addition to all that you do to make CALBO strong.  Enjoy your summer.

CALBO/Cal OES Safety Assessment Program Update – Updated Maps

Our communities depend on certified building and safety professionals, licensed architects, and licensed engineers to identify and mitigate anticipatable hazards in our built environment.

As certified building inspectors, plans examiners, and building officials, as well as licensed architects and engineers, our roles in a post-disaster environment shift from mitigating, to limiting post-disaster emergency shelter needs and expediting post-disaster recovery for our communities.

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.
