CLCA Auxiliary


The purpose of the CLCA Auxiliary is to support the California Landscape Contractors Association, promote friendship and goodwill, and award scholarships to deserving horticultural students through the Landscape Educational Advancement Foundation (LEAF). The CLCA Auxiliary also presents the Humanitarian Trophy Award and the Knight of the Garter Award.

The Auxiliary is governed by the state Board of Directors which includes the Executive Board, the Chapter Presidents, and the committee chairs. The General Council is the supreme governing body of the CLCA Auxiliary and consists of all the members who are present at the general meeting. Conduct and procedures of the General Council are governed by the bylaws of this Auxiliary which are included in this roster.

State board meetings are held twice a year, during CLCA's Summer Family Extravaganza and Annual Convention.
