Public access to Board and Committee Meetings

We’re committed to maintaining the highest level of transparency during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. 

Pursuant to Governor Newsom’s Executive Orders N-29-20 and 33-20, which in part, provide waivers to certain Brown Act provisions, meetings of the Board of Directors will be held by teleconference. There will be no physical location from which members of the public may participate. Instead, the public may listen and/or view the meeting proceedings and provide public comment and comments on agenda items by following these instructions:
