As a second generation resident of Los Angeles, Vic was born and raised in Los Angeles. He graduated from Los Angeles High School and the University of Southern California. As a teenager Vic was a member of, and became Master Counselor of Pioneer Chapter Order of DeMolay, which he followed up with membership in Los Angeles Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons. Vic is still a member. At USC he was a member of Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity.
He has been a Certified Public Accountant since 1966. Even though he worked for LAUSD in accounting for 26 years, he continued his tax practice during and after. For 10 of the last 11 years he was Head Accountant in the Cafeteria Accounting Section.
Since 1992, Vic Viereck has volunteered at the Southland Regional Association of Realtors where he serves on the Professional Standards Committee, and has served on the Grievance and Government Affairs Committees (still a member). He served on the North Hollywood Project Area Committee for the North Hollywood Community Redevel-opment Agency, is an active member of the Valley Industry and Commerce Association, the Universal City North Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Greater Valley Glen Neighborhood Council (as its first Treasurer, until February 2006, and again starting in July 2008 until 2010), and the Valley Alliance of Neighborhood Councils. In July 2003, Vic was elected as Chairman of the UCNH Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee, and was President of the Chamber’s Board of Directors from January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2009.
As of January 1, 2011 he is again President of the chamber until December 31, 2011. Vic’s involvement with the UCNH Chamber has also evolved into his being on the Board of Directors of the United Chambers of Commerce as a co-chair of their Government Affairs Committee. On the North Hollywood Project Area Committee he actively sought to make the extravagant Community Redevelopment Agency accountable to the public. He was also the President of the Kiwanis Club in North Hollywood from October 1, 2004 through September 30, 2005, and is now a member of the Entertainment Industry Group Kiwanis Club in Studio City. As an active member of the Los Angeles Affordable Housing Crisis Task Force Vic Viereck opposed the majority’s recommendation of an additional $95 million of taxes annually. He wrote the task force’s minority report, which is in the Appendix of the resulting report “In Short Supply”. In October 2009 he was recruited onto the Board of Directors of the Mid-Valley Family YMCA.
Being the son and grandson of apartment owners, Vic purchased apartments on his own. After 43 years of owning those apartments, he is still personally involved in their management.
Nominated by the Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles, Vic was one of three apartment owner representatives on the City of Los Angeles seven-member Citizens Oversight Committee regarding the study of the Rent Stabilization Ordinance. Through the Greater Valley Glen Council, in 2009, he was appointed to the South (San Fernando) Valley Budget Committee for 2009, and elected from there to the Mayor’s Regional (Neighborhood Council) Budget Committee for a year.
Being concerned about the lack of services and personnel committed to the Valley (compared to taxes collected in the Valley), he successfully ran for a city council seat in the Valley’s unsuccessful attempt to become independent. That has led to his commitment as Treasurer of Valley VOTE since about 2003.
Vic is truly committed to the well being of his community, city, state, and country.
