Membership is comprised of the senior-most official of each executive agency in the Greater Los Angeles area by virtue of his/her position. There are approximately 275 Federal agencies represented on the Full Board. Full Board meetings are typically held on a quarterly basis. Senior officials and/or their deputies are encouraged to attend.
Leadership, a 21-member Board of Directors including Chair and Vice Chair, is elected annually. The Board of Directors meets monthly and serves as the decision-making body responsible for outlining the Greater Los Angeles Federal Executive Board's (GLAFEB) focus and policies. In addition, it makes recommendations on matters involving interagency coordination and action. As the central management agencies of the U.S. government, representatives of the U.S. General Services Administration and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management serve as ex officio members of the FEB Board of Directors nationwide. Representatives of the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Coast Guard and the Federal Protective Service have been appointed as ex officio well in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
The GLAFEB Executive Director serves as the principal staff advisor to the chair and provides a full range of staff services. The position does not represent an individual agency, as do other members but rather the Federal community as a whole.
The GLAFEB supports and promotes national initiatives of the President and the Administration, and responds to local needs of Federal agencies and the community through the programs and activities of its standing committees.
Membership on these committees includes Federal employees who have been nominated by their agency head. The GLAFEB also participates in and leads a number of community service projects.
