Who should apply
Metro seeks diverse representation on all its advisory committees. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. This year, Metro especially seeks applicants from Clackamas and Washington counties who can bring expertise in the following areas as they relate to transportation planning:
- the needs of underrepresented residents such as people of color, people with low income, people with disabilities, seniors and youth.
- health and safety issues
- technological advancements and opportunities in transportation projects.
All applicants should be able to attend regular meetings that take place on weekdays during business hours. The committee meets from 9:30 a.m. to noon on the last Friday of each month, though additional meetings are sometimes called.
Application and selection process
TPAC community representatives are selected through an application, interview and appointment process. Metro staff will conduct interviews and recommend candidates for the Metro council president to nominate for confirmation by the Metro Council.
Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 13, 2017.
