Foothill-De Anza seeks residents for key committees

The Foothill-De Anza Community College District has announced openings on an independent Measure C Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee and the Audit & Finance Committee.

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. Nov. 19. Trustees will appoint the new members at a January board meeting.

“Having local residents lend their expertise on these committees has been invaluable to the district,” Chancellor Linda M. Thor said. “Members of the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee have contributed excellent ideas about how to track and communicate our progress on Measure C. And the insights of members on the Audit & Finance Committee are particularly useful as we evaluate the district’s budget, review our audits and monitor operational issues.”

Measure C Citizens’

Bond Oversight Committee

The independent Measure C Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee, which provides oversight for the $490.8 million bond program, has three vacancies. Committee members review expenditures from the bond funds, report to the public and present an annual report to the board of trustees.

Candidates must live within the district’s service area and may not be employees, contractors, consultants or vendors.

Bond committee members serve two-year terms. The committee meets quarterly and members are not compensated.

Applicants should have budget, finance and/or audit experience. A typical term of service is four years.

The Audit & Finance Committee assures transparency in fiscal affairs and assists trustees to exercise their fiscal oversight responsibilities. It meets quarterly but may schedule additional meetings if needed. Committee members are not compensated.
