CALBO Membership Application
Welcome to the 2019-2020 CALBO Membership Program that runs from April 1, 2019 – March 31, 2020! Founded in 1962, CALBO is a nonprofit professional association of city and county building departments and industry representatives. Our mission is to promote public health and safety in building construction through responsible legislation, education and building code development.
Please carefully review the recent changes to the CALBO Membership Program. Following a great deal of discussion, CALBO is introducing a tiered membership dues structure for Class I Members based upon population sizes. All other membership categories (including Associate, State Agency Technical, Senior, and Student) are assigned a different flat rate membership due.

Class I Membership: $375-$215
