Meet The External Advisory 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:

  • Anna Bosin (Alaska DOT)

  • Anna Zivarts (Disability Mobility Initiative)
  • Michael Bufalino (Oregon DOT)
