Founded in 2017, the President’s Roundtable is a group of the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County’s most engaged and committed donors. Working closely with President and Director Dr. Lori Bettison-Varga on her top priority projects, Roundtable members develop deep connections to the museums and support their role among the premier cultural and scientific institutions of Los Angeles.
