Comprised of twenty-three (23) people, Governing Board members are chosen in general elections. Vacant seats may be filled by application and a majority vote of current board members. Elections are held in the first or second quarter of odd numbered years, spaced in two-year intervals. Region Representatives serve a four (4) year term. All othere Representatives serve two (2) year terms. Appointed board members fill out the term of the vacated seat.

     Board members are sworn representatives of the City of Los Angeles and must pass finance and ethics certification training. Neighborhood Council board members are entrusted to represent Mid City's interests to the Mayor, City Council and all City government departments and agencies and are tasked by the City Charter with “assisting in the delivery of city services” and “bringing government closer to the people” by holding public meetings within neighborhood council official boundaries and hearing the public’s opinion on matters of concern.

     A stakeholder is anyone with a stake in our community: residents who live here, students who go to school in our region, people who own property within the boundaries, commercial merchants who operate in the neighborhood, and members of local organizations that are active here. 

Open Seats

     From time to time MINC has open board seats which can be filled by board appointment. See our Elections page for details. Email executive@mincla.org and come to a stakeholder meeting to find out more.
