Los Angeles County Division
The Los Angeles County Division is made up of 86 cities within Los Angeles County and provides members with the opportunity to exchange ideas and information and share the advantages of cooperative advocacy. It includes more than 11 million people, stretches 4,500 square miles — making it one of the nation's largest counties — and is led by more than 550 elected officials.
The division is guided by an executive committee under the leadership of a division president. Elected city officials and professional city staff attend division meetings throughout the year to share what they are doing and advocate for their interests in Sacramento.
