Representing the asphalt pavement industry in California
California Asphalt Pavement Association
BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Board of Directors is responsible for setting policy, governance, approving officers, and hiring and evaluating the Executive Director of the association. All statutory members (asphalt producers and refiners) have a seat on the Board of Directors, and may also designate alternate directors to attend and vote at board meetings if the primary director is unable to attend. Also, paving contractors, voting as a class, have two seats on the Board, one representing Northern California and one representing Southern California. A nine-member Executive Committee and officers help provide guidance to the Executive Director and meeting agenda development. Details about CalAPA committees are HERE. Standing advisory committees include:

The TAC also provides consistency with CalAPA's regional Technical Committees and helps formulate association positions and recommendations on technical matters for consideration by the Board of Directors.

The Legislative Committee, working closely with the association's Executive Director and contract lobbyist, helps guide the association's legislative program, makes recommendations to the Board of Directors on positions that should be taken by the association on bills and other legislative matters, and helps organize participation in visits to the state Capitol in Sacramento and the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. do meet with elected representatives on matters of interest to the asphalt pavement industry in California.
POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE (PAC)
The Political Action Committee (PAC) oversees the collection and disbursement of political contributions to candidates for state elective office.

The Audit Committee meets periodically to review the association's financial information to ensure that it is accurate, transparent and complies with all laws and standard practices for accounting by non-profit associations.
