About Our Members

CAPE Members Provide Quality, Efficient and Professional Public Services

The California Association of Professional Employees (CAPE, AFL-CIO) represents 2,500 professional employees of the County of Los Angeles. CAPE members perform a wide array of professional public services that improve the quality of life for county residents.

CAPE members ensure the safety of Los Angeles County roads, buildings, bridges and flood control channels to make sure Angelenos are prepared for earthquakes, fires and floods.

They also design and maintain the county's complex telecommunications networks used for disaster response, map out the county's future housing and infrastructure needs, provide wastewater and solid waste management, and assess the value of all business, personal and residential properties throughout the county, resulting in much needed revenue for the county's general fund allocations.

CAPE members are the public infrastructure professionals of Los Angeles County. We are on the job, every day, to serve YOU!
