The Los Angeles Leather Coalition (LALC) is comprised of voting and non-voting members of the community. The voting members “Community Partners” vote on matters that instruct the Board on how they should steer the organization as it regards the LA Region’s Leather/BDSM Community and the operation of Los Angeles Leather Pride. Community Partners also elect and fill 5 out of the 9 Board of Director seats. Without the voice of our Community Partners the LALC would cease to function. Non-Voting Members as well as Members of the Community are welcome to come to our monthly meetings and voice concern on matters presented before the board.
Community Members can apply to be recognized as a voting “Community Partner” after attending 3 regularly scheduled meetings within the last year. The application can be requested from the LALC Board Secretary via email or at an LALC General Meeting. Once the LALC Board Secretary has received the application and the 3 meeting requirement has been met, the potential Community Partner will be notified when they can be voted in by simple majority of the other Community Partners.
In January of every year, the Community Partners are asked to update their information with the LALC Board Secretary. Please contact the LALC Board Secretary if you have any questions or need to update your organization’s info.
If you have any questions about this process or you would like to inquire about our Community Partners, feel free to contact the LALC Board Secretary, Apolonio “Señor Apple” E. Muñoz III at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 323-553-1236.
