Meet Our Speakers | Business Education

Our Mission / Vision

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

Our EAC, comprised of volunteers from the East Ventura County business community, is managed by a board of directors. We have been assigned a local EDD staff member who assists with the EAC’s operations and provides information on EDD programs and services.
