Board and Staff
Who runs FCLCA?
FCLCA is governed by the Friends Committee on Legislation of California General Committee, composed of representatives from Quaker meetings and churches around the state and at-large members, who are both Quakers and non-Quakers.
The General Committee meets annually. At its annual meeting, it appoints the FCLCA Board of Directors and appoints officers. It also sets the legislative priorities for our staff and our work with the legislation, and revises policy statements that lay out FCLCA’s positions on the issues.
The FCLCA Board of Directors meets quarterly to oversee the operations of FCLCA.
The FCLCA staff implements the day to day operations of FCLCA and the FCL Education Fund.
