Meet The External Board of Directors

PacTrans External Advisory Board and Its Role

The role of the External Advisory Board (EAB) is to provide input on PacTrans’ strategic planning and outreach activities. We anticipate up to two meetings per year where the EAB will help review PacTrans activities and provide advice and vision on strategic directions. Members of the EAB include directors from the research office of the state DOTs in Region 10 and representatives from other transportation agencies, private industries, and communities.

Currently, the PacTrans EAB includes the following transportation professionals:

  • Carolyn Morehouse (Alaska DOT)
  • Scott Drumm (Port of Portland)
  • Charlie Howard (Puget Sound Research Council)
  • Michael Bufalino (Oregon DOT)
  • Wayne Kittelson (Kittelson & Associates)
  • Edward Mantey (Toyota)
  • Leni Oman (Washington DOT)
  • Ned Parrish (Idaho Transportation Department)
  • Jerry Whitehead (Idaho Transportation Board/Western Trailers)
  • Rhonda Brooks (Washington DOT)

The first meeting of the PacTrans EAB with the PacTrans Board of Directors was held on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 on the UW Campus.
