The Del Rey Neighborhood Council (DRNC) is an organization that was officially certified by the City of Los Angeles in October 2003 to increase our influence with City lawmakers and departments and to improve our community. The DRNC came about as a result of Los Angeles City Charter Reform and interested stakeholders in our community.
The Board is elected by stakeholders and holds monthly meetings, usually on the second Thursday of the month. The Board is comprised of volunteers dedicated to serving the community with you. We are focused on putting the Neighbor Back In Neighborhood.
The Board is allocated a budget of approximately $42,000 by the City from your tax dollars.
The DRNC Board of Directors consists of fifteen (15) Directors: seven (7) elected
officers and eight (8) other geographically elected Area Directors, each representing one geographical area.
