EUGENE, Ore. — Lane Community College (LCC) is on the lookout for three dedicated district residents with backgrounds in construction or business to join its Bond Oversight Committee (BOC). The BOC plays a crucial role in monitoring the progress of projects outlined in Measure 20-306, which received voter approval in May 2020.

Interim Vice President of Finance and Operations, John Nesbit, emphasized the importance of the committee, stating, “This committee is essential for maintaining our commitment to transparency with the community. Its members are tasked with reviewing proposed bond projects, assessing the progress of ongoing ones, verifying the college's adherence to its promises, and annually reporting their findings to the Board of Education.”

Interested individuals with relevant business and industry experience are encouraged to apply online, providing details about their educational background, experience, and skills that would benefit the committee. The selection process involves screening applications, conducting interviews, and securing final approvals from LCC President Stephanie Bulger and the Board of Education. The application deadline has been extended to March 1, 2024, at 5 p.m., with the first meeting for new members anticipated to occur in April 2024.

The BOC, comprised of 11 members and two ex-officio members, convenes quarterly in virtual sessions. The composition of the BOC includes five at-large representatives from the LCC District, three members from construction and/or business sectors, two LCC employees, and one LCC student. Members serve staggered three-year terms and can serve a maximum of two terms. Positions are voluntary and do not offer compensation.
