Those selected to serve on this body will be legally considered public officials for the duration of their service. This means members must publicly disclose potential “conflicts of interest.” We will provide training on this once you are accepted. Having potential “conflicts of interest” does not mean you cannot serve. Many committees have potential members with “conflicts of interest” by the nature of the work. The Conflict of Interest Disclosure is included in the application. Please fill all conflicts of interest on your application.

MEMBERSHIP & TERM
BAC’s membership is intended to represent a cross-section of diverse expertise, skill sets, background, and viewpoints. Committee members will serve a two-year term with the opportunity to renew future terms (up to eight years total). There will be 12-15 active members. Per City of Portland requirements, the new BAC membership also includes two Civic Life staff from represented and non-represented positions.
The BAC will begin meeting in October and continue with monthly meetings through the late spring. There may be a reason for twice a month meetings in January due to workload needs related to budget submission, but members will be notified promptly of any additional meetings. Our goal is to have a minimum of six meetings per fiscal year.
