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:

 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.
