Private Equity Association of Los Angeles
The Private Equity Association of Los Angeles (PEALA) was established with the mission to support, educate and connect the relatively fragmented community of private equity associates in the Los Angeles area.
Membership in PEALA is open to any member of the Los Angeles investment community, with the belief that a breadth and diversity in membership will enhance the experience for all participants.

PEALA's founding objectives are to:
Provide opportunities for social networking with industry peers
Connect finance professionals with non-profit and community service groups
Host educational forums and workshops for professional development
Coordinate and host information sessions with leading MBA programs
