With the help of the Greater Los Angeles Federal Executive Board, the Los Angeles Chapter was launched in March 2011 with board members representing the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, Air Force, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Homeland Security, and AmeriCorps. YGL-LA hit the ground running, participating in an invitation-only focus group with OPM’s Deputy Director and senior staff to discuss then proposed regulations for the President’s Executive Order to reform student pathways into government (Today we have the Pathways Program for Students and Recent Graduates to Federal Careers!). YGL-LA maintained a presence throughout the year with a series of events and social media focus to recruit and engage new members.
2014 and beyond will focus on a mixture of professional development for members and providing valuable input to future government decisions within greater Los Angeles. As such, the Chapter has actively broadened its executive board and membership to include local and state government employees within greater Los Angeles. YGL-LA will serve as a coordinated voice for young government in Los Angeles, facilitate online discussion, and provide relevant information, resources, and opportunities to members through events, research and daily posts, tweets and updates.
Stay connected, get involved and have fun as you prepare yourself for the challenges of public service. For daily news and discussion regarding all things government in LA, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter @YGL_LA, and join us on GovLoop!
