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.

CALAFCO represents LAFCos throughout the state and is proud to partner with a variety of Associate Members in supporting the work of LAFCos throughout California.

Each of the four regions has one County, one City, one Special District and one Public Member on the Board.
