Board Meetings

Your District Organization

The Board of Directors is composed of five members elected from the local area, on a non-partisan basis to serve 4-year staggered terms. It is the Board’s responsibility to adopt resolutions and policies necessary for governing the affairs of the District. The regular meeting of your Board of Directors is a vital part of the democratic process in the conduct of the District’s affairs. These meetings are open to the public and conducted by these elected representatives who are responsible as a body for the operation of the District. The Board appreciates your interest and urges your participation in District matters.

Meetings of the Board of Directors are held in the Board Room in the District Administration Building, 201 Aviation Street, Shafter Airport, on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m.

Public Presentations

Persons desiring to address the Board on any matter not on the Agenda and over which the Board has jurisdiction may do so under this portion of the Agenda. Speakers are limited to two minutes.
