Legislative Aides Association


The CSUN Legislative Aides Association was established in October, 2000 by former President Jolene Koester and is chaired by current President Dianne F. Harrison. The organization is comprised of aides from the offices of elected officials (city, county, state and federal) representing districts in the University's service area - primarily the greater San Fernando Valley.

The Legislative Aides Association meets on a quarterly basis and focuses on key University issues and informs members about unique programs on the campus.
