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.
