Welcome to the official website of the California Shore and Beach Preservation Association (CSBPA). CSBPA is an educational and professional association with members from government, academics, coastal engineering and other professions, as well as property owners and individuals and groups interested in the coast of California.

CSBPA is the California state chapter of the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association. ASBPA was founded in 1926 to promote the "protection and proper utilization" of the shores of the United States, as outlined in the Association's objectives. These goals are just as important and valid today as they were over 70 years ago!

CSBPA is governed by a 15-member Board of Directors that includes a President, two Vice-Presidents, a Secretary and a Treasurer. Take a look at the CSBPA and ASBPA Membership Info and Benefits.
