After 12 plus years as an organization, the Orange County Bail Agents Association this week voted unanimously to dissolve. More specifically, the OCBAA agreed to dissolve and transfer all assets to OCBAA, Inc. which officailly incorporated in November of this year.
The OCBAA was formed in 1996 to assist local Orange County bail bondsmen in educating the public, law enforcement and the courts how bail works. As an organization, the OC bondsmen have made in roads by contacting and visiting local police departments and the Sheriff’s Department jail. The group regularly hosts relative bail industry speakers such as Santa Ana Police Department Chief Paul Walters and the Department of Insurance investigators.
The newly incorporated bondsmen association will operate in much the same manner. The Board of Directors, including officers, remains basically the same. The Board will continue to meet monthly with quarterly member meetings. The mission of the newly incorporated organization will also will remain unchanged: To promote, advance, preserve and protect the business interests of retail bail agents based in Orange County, California.
