About the Los Angeles Area Chapter

Welcome to the Los Angeles Area EFA Chapter page. EFA-LA is open to all EFA members in the Los Angeles area. If you fall a little outside the area—from the desert to the sea—consider yourself welcome too.

We will continue to have virtual meetings until it is safe to have functions in person.


NEXT MEETING: The next chapter meeting will take place on Wednesday, August 18 at 2 p.m. Details to follow.

PREVIOUS MEETING: Kellie Hultgren from Minnesota gave a presentation, “Avoid the Knowledge Gap in Your Editing,” at the May 12 chapter meeting. Kellie explored the roles of instinct and when to trust it as well as intuition in editing. She covered common knowledge gaps and how to avoid them. We were taught techniques for recognizing and confronting gaps before they become a problem. A Q&A followed the presentation. Kellie provided a handout, which included further reading recommendations.



The summer networking meeting (social) will take place (hopefully in person) for the Westside/metro LA members on Tuesday, June 22 (with co-coordinator Linda Ruggeri). Details to follow.

The San Fernando Valley/Antelope Valley/Santa Clarita/Ventura County networking social will take place in the fall with co-coordinator Janet Long. Details to follow.


This smaller group setting will allow us to get to know one another better and to talk about our challenges and accomplishments in our businesses. Regular chapter meetings will still occur.
