March 2024 - Agenda (Coming Soon!)
CAB Membership Application: Applications to CAB are retained for two-years to be considered in filling vacancies. When a vacancy occurs, or is about to occur, an ad hoc Nominating Committee is formed by current CAB members to review the applications on file and coordinate interviews with those that best meet the criteria needed for the vacant seat. Applicants selected for consideration are contacted by staff from CAP to schedule an interview with the Nominating Committee. Individuals nominated by CAB must be confirmed by the Board of Supervisors prior to be seated.
Additional Information: The application will be public record since it is submitted to the Board, however an applicant’s address will be redacted. To learn more about CAB and other County of San Diego Boards, Commissions and Committees, please see the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors webpage.
