The L.A. Media Research Council was established to deal specifically with the issues and challenges of the L.A. community that may not have received enough attention in the overall marketing ecosystem. It consists of researchers at media companies who have formed three Working Groups to address the issues they consider most pressing. Additionally, the LA Media Research Council Community sponsored by Conviva offers a dynamic, vibrant space for marketing and advertising professionals to interact and engage with the Council’s research, members, and ideas.
