Chatsworth, CA – November 5, 2018 – George Stevens, the Executive Director at North Los Angeles County Regional Center (NLACRC), has announced his plan to retire. His last day with NLACRC will be July 15, 2019
Mr. Stevens has supported our community in a variety of positions at NLACRC since 1976. Upon his retirement date, he will have been employed with NLACRC for more than 40 years. Over the last 20 years of his service, he has served as the Executive Director of NLACRC.
Over the course of George’s career with NLACRC, he has seen tremendous change in the developmental disability system, the Center’s evolvement over the years, and the dramatic growth of NLACRC staff.
“It has been an incredible honor and privilege to support and contribute to the spirit of the Lanterman Act and the system as a whole. I am incredibly excited to turn this page in my life and am ready to begin this new chapter. I wish everyone well, this is a great organization and community filled with dedicated people and community organizations.”

NLACRC’s Board President, Debra Newman says, “It’s always sad to say goodbye to a dear friend and colleague. George and I have worked together for over five (5) years. As I pen these words of appreciation and admiration, it’s hard to imagine the Center without George. He approached our daily challenges with optimism and a positive attitude that uplifted and motivated each of us to do our best. George’s contributions to the Center and the community as a whole are unparalleled and exceptional. He supported the Center and our community for over 40 years, and served as the Center’s Executive Director for more than 20 years. George will be missed, but his legacy will remain with us as an indelible reminder of the more than 40 years of exceptional service to the developmental services community.”
