Our Board and Staff

NLG Los Angeles Board and Staff Meeting

The Executive Board of NLG-LA, elected each December by NLG-LA’s membership, is responsible for fundraising and governing the finances, operations, and programmatic work of the organization.  The Executive Board (currently 35 members) meets monthly to discuss the organization’s business and programs, and communicates on a regular basis through an email list serve. The Executive Board, at its first meeting of the calendar year, elects an Executive Committee comprised of two co-Presidents, a Vice President of Communications, Vice President of Membership, Vice President of Web Development, and Treasurer.  The Executive Committee is tasked with governing the staff and day-to-day operations of the organization.

Many of our Board members are members of the organizations and associations we work with, or are members of the communities of color that are most impacted by our country’s systems of injustice.  Our board members participate in the Guild’s programmatic work through their membership on committees or on special projects.
