The Construction Contractors’ Board (“CCB”) is considering raising the future license fee by $50 per renewal period. The proposed $50 increase would offset the elimination of $1.6M in continuing education fees currently paid by contractors to fund the CCB continuing education program. This proposal is a direct response to contractor complaints questioning the relevancy and quality of the existing residential continuing education classes. The potential increased revenues would also provide the resources for the CCB to begin auditing commercial and residential contractor license renewals for compliance with continuing education requirements. The education staff will continue to maintain an online directory of continuing education providers and to provide CCB-produced classes.
The CCB will be discussing this proposal at their annual stakeholders’ meeting on December 1, 2015 at 9:30 am in Salem (201 High Street SE). AGC members are invited to attend. If you are unable to attend, please feel free to contact Kirsten Adams, Public Affairs Counsel (firstname.lastname@example.org or (503) 685-8312) or Kimberly Wood, Perlo Construction and CCB Board Chair (email@example.com or (503) 624-2090) prior to the stakeholders’ meeting with your comments or concerns.
