AEBG Consortia Governance Research

As the Los Angeles Regional Adult Education Consortium (LARAEC) began the process of creating the next Three‐Year Regional Comprehensive Plan, LARAEC staff was tasked with doing some preliminary research. The LARAECExecutive Team wanted to:
 Evaluate the current governance structure in the consortium
 Have a better understanding of the governance structures of other consortia
 Consider recommendations for the expansion or restructuring of LARAEC.
Staff was tasked with creating a report and presentation to provide a starting point for a deeper discussion at a consortium‐wide workshop. The research was conducted in the fall of 2018, and presented to the LARAEC Executive Board November 2, 2018. Funding considerations that were documented as part of this research were compiled in a separate document, Funding Formula Research, and presented separately on December 7, 2018.
Marketing considerations and recommendations were also compiled in a separate document, Marketing Plan, and presented on October 19, 2018.

2019 Changing Nature of Work Report

Securing a strong economic future for all Californians

California’s economy is at a crossroads. The state’s GDP is now the fifth largest in
the world, but with one in four Californians living in or near poverty, the state’s
prosperity stands on shaky ground. California’s policy leaders can secure an
economic future that works for all of California by investing in the state’s greatest
asset: its people. A stable, well-paying job is a top priority for Californians who
struggle to make ends meet.Meanwhile, a skilled and diverse workforce is a key
asset to California companies competing in the global marketplace. A world-class
workforce development system that helps more workers build in-demand skills
and connect to good jobs can support the economic aspirations of Californians
while boosting the capacity of the state’s businesses. This agenda lays out innovative
workforce development strategies that the state’s policymakers can deploy to
drive economic growth through equity, opportunity, and innovation.

California adults aged 25-64 and identifies the personal obstacles and systemic barriers they face
upon returning to college to complete their degree. The next report will outline straightforward
recommendations policymakers should incorporate in 2019 to empower these adults to return to
college, graduate, and thrive in California’s innovation economy.
