Regional Councils are vital to effective governance at SEIU Local 721. Our union is comprised of more than 95,000 members across Southern California – from the beaches of Santa Barbara and Ventura all the way to the desert communities of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. Regional Councils ensure that SEIU Local 721’s entire membership has a voice as our union establishes priorities, sets an agenda and implements our vision.

SEIU Local 721 has four Regional Councils covering the four geographic areas of our union: Inland Area, LA County, LA/OC Cities and Tri-Counties. Regional Council elections were first held in 2010; the most recent Regional Council election took place in 2016. Members of each Regional Council officially advise the SEIU Local 721 Executive Board on local issues specific to their respective regions.
