Applicants Sought for OCTA Public Member Board Position

Do you know someone who wants to make a difference in Orange County transportation? OCTA is searching for the right person to represent the public on its 18-member Board of Directors. Voting members include five members of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, ten Orange County city members, and two Public Members. A non-voting member, representing the California Department of Transportation, also sits on the Board.

OCTA is seeking applicants for one Public Member seat for a four-year term.

Candidates must be residents of Orange County and should have some knowledge of transportation, finance, and OCTA priorities, and an interest in representing the public. A person who is currently serving as an elected official within the County, an elected official of any agency or special district within the County, or an elected official of the County of Orange, and who has held any of those positions in the past four years, is not eligible to apply.

The person selected will be asked to devote 15 to 20 hours each month to Board business, including two monthly meetings of the Board of Directors and other activities. A stipend is available.
