CLCA – A Professional Organization
The California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA) is an active force in the statewide effort to conserve water. As water-efficient irrigation experts, many members are invaluable sources for consultations on planning and installing water-saving irrigation systems. CLCA also conducts an active public information program on landscape water management.
CLCA is a non-profit trade organization of licensed landscape and landscape-related contractors. Also included among its members are landscape suppliers, landscape architects, public officials, educators, and students. Although formally incorporated in 1952, CLCA has been meeting as an association since 1937.
Contractor members are licensed by the state of California. CLCA educates consumers about the dangers of hiring unlicensed contractors and maintains an Operation Helping Hand Program to encourage and help unlicensed individuals become licensed landscape contractors.
The association’s state and local activities provide members with a forum for open discussion, networking and learning. The association provides a large menu of services to its members, including educational resources, contract forms, educational events, publicity, access to legal consultants and peer advice, group insurance, political advocacy, information, a landscape awards program, certification programs for landscape technicians and water managers, and an industry trade show.
CLCA has 17 chapters statewide that conduct monthly meetings and carry on the association’s activities and objectives on a local level. Its 23 standing committees and several task forces develop and implement various programs and services. A listing of these chapters can be found here.
