King County is soliciting applications for its existing Economic Opportunity and Empowerment Program (EOEP) Advisory Board.
King County established the EOEP Advisory Board by Ordinance 17973. The Board operates in an advisory role to advise and assist King County, via an Administrator, to achieve or exceed the apprenticeship requirements and hiring goals for minorities and women apprentices, and small contractor and supplier participation for the Children and Family Justice Center (CFJC). Construction of the CFJC includes the Alder School and a parking garage. All Board members must be a King County resident. The King County Executive appoints the advisory Board members and the County Council confirms these appointments.
The original EOEP Advisory Board consisted of 11 members that began meeting in 2015. Current Board members include representatives from the building trades, construction industry, labor, community organizations, and pre-apprenticeship providers. The Board has several vacancies currently. We are seeking individuals who have experience with providing diverse communities access to family wage careers in the construction industry, experience with small business inclusion, apprenticeship programs, or other knowledge or experience related to large capital construction projects.
The EOEP Advisory Board will continue its work through completion of the entire project that includes the Alder School and a parking garage. Construction is anticipated to continue until 2021. Board meeting times and frequency will be determined later. The Board will meet at least once each quarter.
