South Coast AQMD Seeking Hearing Board Candidates

South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), located in Diamond Bar, performs work critical to the health and well-being of over 17 million people living in four Southern California counties.  We are seeking two candidates for appointment to our Hearing Board for three-year terms, from July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2016.  The appointments are: One Medical Member and one alternate Medical Member.  (Both appointments require a licensed physician with two or more years of practical experience).  Since these posts are unusual and traditional advertising is not likely to get the best results, we’re writing to ask for your assistance in spreading the word. 

SCAQMD’s quasi-judicial Hearing Board was chartered to provide an appellate process for companies and public agencies that are subject to SCAQMD rules and regulations, to ensure fairness in our regulatory actions.  The Board has authority to grant variances to SCAQMD rules, revoke and suspend SCAQMD operating permits, and issue Orders of Abatement.  As state law requires, Hearing Board Members are appointed by, but act independently of, SCAQMD’s Governing Board.  Regular members of the SCAQMD Hearing Board are compensated at a rate of $5,411.51 per month, with alternate members receiving $422.11 per day, as needed. 

Finding the right individuals with the right qualifications for these key appointments is critical; therefore, if you know of any colleagues who might be interested, then please forward this e-mail to them or direct them to for all details on how to apply.  This opportunity closes at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 17, 2013.
