For the past four months LA’s 99 Neighborhood Councils (NCs) have been holding virtual public meetings online and over the phone utilizing the meeting protocols established by the City of Los Angeles Department of Neighborhood Empowerment’s EmpowerLA Virtual Governance (EVG) system for Neighborhood Councils.

This new system ensures consistent, equitable guidelines for virtual public Neighborhood Council meetings which conform to all local, state, and federal laws applying to traditional public meetings. These protocols remain in place while the temporary modifications to California’s Brown Act, which guarantees the public’s right to attend and participate in meetings of local legislative bodies, are in effect. 

In the spirit of full transparency, we have posted our zoom meeting recordings at, and will continue to provide these zoom recordings moving forward.
