EUGENE, Ore. — Lane Community College is seeking members to fill two vacancies on the Bond Oversight Committee (BOC). The BOC is charged with reviewing progress on the projects detailed in LCC Bond Measure 20-306 that was approved by voters in the May 2020 election.

Applicants for the first vacancy should represent district-based construction and/or business industry. The second vacancy is an at-large position, and can be held by any member of the public who resides within Lane Community College’s service area. Those interested in either vacant position should complete the online application that will ask individuals about their education, experience, and skills that will be helpful to the committee. Members of the committee are selected to reflect a broad cross-section of district residents, including age, economic status, diversity and location. Applications are to be screened, interviews conducted, and final appointments confirmed by the LCC Board of Education. Applications are due May 20, 2023, by 5:00 p.m. 

Consisting of 11 members and two ex-officio members, the BOC meets quarterly in a virtual session. The makeup of the committee includes five members representing LCC District residents at-large, one member representing the Cottage Grove area, one member representing the Florence area, three members representing district-based construction and/or business, two members representing LCC employees, and one member representing LCC students. Terms are staggered and last for three years, with each member serving a maximum of two terms. Committee members do not receive compensation. 

The online application and more information about the BOC can be found at the Bond Oversight Committee webpage. Questions should be directed to Megan Miller.
