Work for Warriors (WFW) is a State and Federally funded FREE Job Placement Program in California. The intent of the employment initiative branded “Work for Warriors” is aimed at assisting Post 9/11 Veterans, Active National Guard, Active Reserve members, Spouses, and Gold Star Families in finding civilian employment in their region of California.

In February 2012, The Adjutant General (TAG) of the California National Guard, Major General David S. Baldwin, worked with his staff and the Speaker of the Assembly, John A. Perez, to tackle the California National Guard unemployment rate. The goal was to reduce it by 25% in a year, which was accomplished and exceeded. To date, Work For Warriors has assisted with the placement of  over 6,000 Service Members, Veterans and Spouses into gainful employment. Additionally, Work For Warriors has over 500 business partners throughout the state.

Record of Survey submittal workshops

BPELSG is looking at hosting some workshops around the state to discuss Record of Surveys and Corner Record, submittal and review. Our goal is to bring the submitting surveyor and the reviewing County surveyor closer together to produce a better map and process for the public. The workshops will be for both the submitting surveyor’s and the reviewers, we want to hear constructive ideas from all. Our first workshop will be December 12, 2018 in Riverside. We will be releasing dates and locations for the other workshops soon.
