Our Board

NLG Los Angeles Board and Staff Meeting

The Executive Board of NLG-LA, elected each year by NLG-LA’s membership, is responsible for fundraising and governing the finances, operations, and programmatic work of the organization.  The Executive Board meets monthly to discuss the organization’s business and programs, and communicates on a regular basis through an email list serve. 

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.
