About Us

The California Association of Local Agency Formation Commissions (CALAFCO) is a 501(c)3 non-profit founded in 1971. CALAFCO serves as an organization dedicated to assisting member LAFCos with educational, technical and legislative resources that otherwise would not be available. The Association provides state-wide coordination of LAFCo activities, serves as a resource to the Legislature and other bodies, and offers a structure for sharing information among the various LAFCos and other governmental agencies.

The membership of CALAFCO consists of all 58 of the LAFCos in California, along with an associate membership of firms and agencies which support the educational mission of the organization.

CALAFCO has a sixteen (16) member Board of Directors, representing all four regions of the Association. There are four representatives each from the Northern, Southern, Coastal and Central regions. Each of the four regions has one County, one City, one Special District and one Public Member on the Board.  

CALAFCO has two part-time contract staff: an Executive Director and an Administrator. Our offices are located in downtown Sacramento, just two blocks from the State Capitol.
