Chancellor's Business Council​

Guided by the belief that dynamic partnerships between business and educational leaders strengthen our economy and improve the quality of life for all residents in Southern California, the Chancellor’s Business Council creates a forum for dialogue, development and collaboration regarding the local economy, business enterprise and the workforce needs of our region.

The Council provides a framework to explore the role of the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) and its 9 Community Colleges in meeting those needs through education, training and business interactions. The Council is comprised of local business and civic leaders who provide counsel to the Chancellor for the Los Angeles Community College District.

The Council is not intended to be meeting intensive. It is designed to strategically convene members for dialogues around well-defined topics. A minimum annual membership contribution of $5,000 per individual and $10,000 per company is requested of all participants. Funds will be used to help LACCD students cover the costs to attend any of our 9 Colleges. These costs include, tuition, textbooks, tools and transportation.

With more than 230,000 students, roughly 10,000 employees, 4,000 business vendors, 9 campuses, two learning centers, and an annual budget of $5.6 Billion, the economic impact of LACCD is vast. Within the past 16 years LA County voters have approved bond measures totaling more than $9 Billion dollars to build new facilities and improve existing infrastructure at our Colleges. The most recent bond for $3.3 Billion passed with more than 75% of the voters approving. No Educational Organization in Southern California is better poised to build an educated, enlightened and workforce-ready populace that strengthens our economy and reinforces the social fabric of our society.

Top Business leaders are identified and invited to join the Council by LACCD’s Chancellor.
