Advancing bold public policy that drives economic growth.

The Los Angeles Business Council is one of the most effective and influential business voices in California.

For over 80 years, the LABC has had a major impact on public policy by harnessing the power of business and government to promote progress in the Los Angeles region in the areas of energy, housing, transportation, international trade and economic development.

We are successful at driving progress because we ground our efforts in evidence-based research, build diverse coalitions, and create a path forward for meaningful and measurable progress.

Today our 500+ members represent business and civic leaders from all industry sectors who are focused on innovative public policy that strengthens our economy while improving quality of life for all of us. We work in tandem with our research arm, the LABC Institute, to achieve these ambitious goals.

Through bold, progressive leadership for business, the LABC is trailblazing the way to a stronger, more equitable Los Angeles.

“The Los Angeles Business Council is the most forward-looking business organization in Los Angeles. And one of the best in the country.”

– Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti
