CALAFCO, the organizing entity for the state’s local agency formation commissions, has issued a Request for Professional Services for the position of Executive Director.

The position serves as the primary paid staff position for the statewide agency, with supporting staff and the board of directors receiving stipends for some expenses. This enables the executive director to provide immediate and in-depth direction of all of the agency’s operations.

CALAFCO was founded in 1971 and serves as the statewide educational and support association for the state’s 58 LAFCos, as well as the Legislature and other governmental bodies.

CALAFCO provides services to members that include an Annual Conference for 250-300 attendees, workshops, university course, newsletters, legislative education and advocacy, and more.

The member LAFCos are responsible for coordinating changes in local government boundaries, conducting studies about reorganizing governments, as well as offering advice to streamline and simplify governmental structures.

CALAFCO is governed by a Board of Directors composed of sixteen Commissioners: four city members, four county members, four special district members and four members of the public. It is under their direction that the Executive Director works.
CALAFCO’s Request for Professional Services requests, but does not require, experience with the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act, in addition to experience in local government.

The Association’s contract for services includes an annual range of $80,000 to $100,000.

The deadline to submit a response is Wednesday, May 2, 2012.
