Formerly known as the California Association of LAFCOs, CALAFCO was initially formed in 1971. It now serves as an umbrella organization dedicated to assisting the member LAFCOs with technical support and statewide communication. CALAFCO attempts to provide statewide coordination of LAFCO activities and provides representation before the State Legislature and other bodies on behalf of the LAFCOs.
Executive Board consisting of 13 LAFCO Commissioners governs CALAFCO.
Of these, four are city members, four are county members, three are
public members, and two are special district members. In addition,
CALAFCO is served by an Executive Officer acting as the CALAFCO
Executive Director, and a legal advisor, both of whom serve voluntarily
in their capacity. To accomplish the goals and objectives of the LAFCO,
the Executive Board utilizes its resources and staff on a volunteer
basis and utilizes a number of committees to effecuate its programs.
Among the activities included are a newsletter, a workshop program, and
an annual conference. More information about CALAFCO may be obtained
by the Executive Officer or you may visit their site at calafco.org.
