Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

Mayor’s Military Veteran Advisory Council

The Mayor’s Military Veteran Advisory Council (MVAC) was created to advise Mayor Garcetti’s administration on emerging issues and guide policy and program development. MVAC consists of seven members: four appointed by the Mayor and three appointed by the Los Angeles City Council. MVAC creates an opportunity for veterans and community stakeholders to participate in the local policy-making process,  by  incorporating community feedback in its recommendations to strengthen veterans’ initiatives and programs.
