“Collaboration for Sensible Regulatory Solutions”

Our Message

CoLAB, Ventura County is a non-profit organization formed in 2010 out of frustration with the local regulatory system. We collaborate with partners, public agencies and decision makers to provide sensible solutions for complicated regulatory issues. Through memberships and donations we monitor policy, fund experts in science, engineering and law, write comment letters and testify at public meetings. Join us today and become a part of the CoLAB community.

  • We READ the regulations so you don’t have to;
  • We DO OUR HOMEWORK and come to the table prepared;
  • We HIRE EXPERTS when needed;
  • We CHALLENGE complicated, hard to comply with and expensive regulations;
  • We COLLABORATE with our partners, agencies, policy makers and other interested parties;
  •  We have our EAR TO THE GROUND to anticipate what will come next;

We are pleased to introduce our newly established VC COLAB Foundation, a 501(c)3 public charity to procure funding for the charitable purposes of the Ventura County Coalition of Labor, Agriculture and Business, to advance education and science, combat community deterioration and lessen the burdens of government. And we thank the Esper A . Peterson Foundation for their major contribution of $100,000. We deeply appreciate their commitment to our mission. This donation is conditional upon the VC CoLAB Foundation securing matching contributions by January of 2016. We are almost halfway there! Click here to learn more.
