Welcome to the official website of the LACC

Welcome to the Los Angeles Consular Corps. (LACC). We are a California nonprofit mutual benefit corporation, formed for the purpose of fostering and promoting an esprit de corps amongst our members; promoting and fostering goodwill, friendly relations and cooperation between our countries and United States Federal, State and local governmental authorities. Whenever more than one Consul is posted to a community, there is formed a collective body known as a Consular Corps. It is a body sui generis without legal standing to act collectively. (Each government must act for itself). For convenience, most Consular Corps organize themselves to exchange information and meet with local and official leaders. The senior Consul (by rank and/or longevity) is called the Dean and usually represents the corps for protocol purposes. The Los Angeles Consular Corps is presently led by the Dean, the Consul General of Ethiopia, Hon. Zerihun Retta Shumye. The LACC is governed by an Executive Committee which is appointed by the Dean.
