CFCA Day At The Capitol lets industry leaders get in front of members of the Legislature. During last year’s Day At The Capitol, members came together in Sacramento, CA attending close to 100 legislative meetings.
This is an advocacy opportunity for our members to meet, educate, and build relationships with their State Senators and Assemblymembers.
Each CFCA member will have the opportunity to meet with their representatives in their Capitol office to discuss issues currently impacting our industry in California.

Assemblymember Carlos Villapudua was born and raised in Stockton, and received his bachelor’s degree from California State University, Sacramento. Prior to being elected to the State Assembly in 2020, he served on the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors for eight years. He spent this time fighting to keep the doors open at the County General Hospital to save healthcare in the County, and expanding both the Stockton Metropolitan Airport and the Port of Stockton. This work helped attract employers to the local area to create good paying jobs for local families.
After serving on the Board of Supervisors, Assemblymember Villapudua worked as the CEO of the San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to support minority-owned small businesses locally and in Sacramento. He also served as the Governmental Relations Manager for Western Pacific Truck School, where he worked to increase funding for vocational education and provided jobs that can support an entire household.
