Our Mission / Vision

The East Ventura County Employer Advisory Council (EVC-EAC) is an independent, non-profit organization with two major functions:

Work to educate employers to deal with employment-related issues. Provide low-cost and timely seminars on employment law, pending legislation, and proper human resource practices.

Partner with the California State Employment Development Department (EDD) to market its services and to promote regulations, policies, and business-friendly procedures. This partnership allows our member employers to link directly with local EDD offices for needed services and answers to their questions.

A Board of Directors manages our EAC made up of volunteers from the East Ventura County business community. We have been assigned a local EDD staff person who assists with the operations of the EAC and provides information on EDD programs and services.
