About Us


Welcome to the official web site of the Charlotte Area Liaison Group, the area’s premier employer association facilitating workplace fairness and equality.

The Charlotte Area Liaison Group (CALG) was formed in 1991 and is based on the belief that improved and expanded communications between regulatory agencies and contractors, constituency and other groups will result in greater employment opportunity. CALG promotes affirmative action and equal employment opportunity by working closely with the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and related administrative agencies to advocate the positions and viewpoints of its constituents, shape regulatory and legislative outcomes and educate constituents on developments regarding regulatory changes

The Charlotte Area Liaison Group and others like it represent a unique partnership of public and private sector cooperation. Each Industry Liaison Group (ILG) adopts a proactive approach to addressing important social issues and reaching mutual goals. Today, there are over 80 ILGs in 6 regions across the U.S. representing over 1200 organizations. Your company or organization can become a participating member

Industry Liaison Groups gained prominence in 1982, when the Director of the Office of Federal Compliance Programs, Ellen Shong (now Shong-Bergman), encouraged open communications between industry and the OFCCP in anticipation of new regulations for Executive Order 11246. Representatives from government contractors began forming ILGs in the Department of Labor regions around the country.
