Economic Opportunity and Empower Program Advisory Board

The King County Finance and Business Operations Division is soliciting applications for its existing Economic Opportunity and Empowerment Program Advisory Board. This advisory board was established by Ordinance 17973 to advise and assist King County via an Administrator in developing plans to achieve or exceed the hiring and training goals for apprentices and the utilization goals for small contractors and suppliers for construction of the Children and Family Justice Center. Advisory Board members are appointed by the Executive and confirmed by the County Council.

The original board consisted of 11 members and began meeting in 2015. Current board members include representatives from the building trades, construction industry, labor, community organizations and pre-apprenticeship providers. The board currently has several vacancies. We are looking for individuals who have experience with providing diverse communities access to family wage careers in the construction industry, and/or experience with small business inclusion or apprentice participation on large capital construction projects.

The advisory board is anticipated to exist through completion of the project that is anticipated in 2020. Meeting times, and frequency will be determine at a later date, but it is anticipated the Board will meet at least twice a year.
