Los Angeles







With the help of the Greater Los Angeles Federal Executive Board, the Los Angeles Chapter was launched and has grown to over 700 strong so far.

Volunteer Day and Joint Mixer 

2015 was a year of growth and momentum for Young Government Leaders Los Angeles (YGL-LA). We began the year with the YGL-LA 2015 Volunteer Day at the CFC charity Foodbank of Southern California where we prepared food boxes for SoCal families. Next, YGL-LA held a joint mixer with Asian Pacific American Legislative Staffer Network (APALS) and Blacks in Government Los Angeles Long Beach Chapter (BIGLALB) which showcased the diversity of experience and backgrounds of YGL-LA’s members and friends.  The event also collected donations for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.

Speaker Series 

We capitalized on our growing membership and success with the 2015 Speaker Series in downtown Los Angeles in July. The theme of the event was transitioning from an expert to a manager. The featured speaker was Ed Laughlin, Assistant Director of the Government Accountability Office, who shared his own experiences about continuing to be both an expert and manager. YGL LA also utilized the event to raise funds and bring awareness to the 2015 Special Olympics.


Lastly, we shared the experience of one of our board members with all YGL-LA members who attended the Next Generation of Government Training Summit (NextGen) in Washington, DC. NextGen 2015 was inspirational and well-organized. Co-hosted by GovLoop and Young Government Leaders, the event aimed to educate, inspire, and train government employees who are of Generation X and Y. The ideas shared during the event were relevant to anyone who works in government and needed some reinvigoration in mind and spirit. The keynote speakers, pitched innovative ideas and discussed topics ranging from “the six essential skills to be an entrepreneur” to the power of sticky notes and challenging the traditional ways of running meetings. NextGen in DC can be a valuable tool in any young gov’s tool box.

2016 will be a year of continued growth, success and leadership for YGL-LA so don’t miss out.
