Those interested in applying for the At-Large position on the Proposition R Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) have a few more weeks to prepare their application. The deadline has been extended to Friday, April 26, 2013 at 4:30 p.m.

Members of the committee are responsible for informing the public and the college’s Governing Board about the expenditure of bond proceeds, review expenditures to ensure they are in alignment with voter-approved projects and providing an annual report summarizing the committee’s proceedings and activities.

The current Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee meets quarterly, with occasional interim meetings to discuss certain topics or make site visits.

Interested individuals are asked to fill out the committee’s application—available here. Applications are due by Friday, April 26 at 4:30 p.m. and should be sent to the attention of Janell Ruiz in the office of the Vice President for Business and Financial Affairs, Southwestern College, 900 Otay Lakes Road, Chula Vista, CA 91910 or applicants can email the application to jruiz@swccd.edu

All applications will be reviewed by college staff for a recommendation to college Superintendent/President Dr. Melinda Nish. Final approval will be made by the Southwestern College Governing Board at the May 8 meeting.
