Congratulations BOLA Graduates!


Congratulations to the Building Officials Leadership Academy (BOLA) Class of 2021-2022 and 2022-2023! Members from both classes graduated at CALBO’s 61st Annual Business Meeting on Thursday, March 9, 2023. The BOLA Graduation Ceremony and Luncheon was a great event that added twenty-two leaders to the BOLA alumni network. Since the start of the BOLA program, there have been over six dozen graduates who have become building officials or directors for their jurisdiction. We can’t wait to see what these graduates accomplish next!
