The ICTC or “Commission”, on behalf of its member agencies, exercises leadership in the regional transportation and transit planning and programming process. Imperial County is located in the Imperial Valley, bordering both Arizona and Mexico. Although this region is a desert, with high temperatures and low average rainfall of three inches (seventy-five mm) per year, the economy is heavily based on agriculture due to irrigation, supplied wholly from the Colorado River.
Appointed by and reporting to ICTC’s Board of Commissioners, comprised of 10 elected officials, the next Executive Director will use their knowledge of transportation systems to strategically guide ICTC while working in tandem with the Commission and other regulatory, environmental, and partner agencies. Those who prioritize staff and board development, work collaboratively within the organization, and drive discussions on an array of complex topics will find success in this role. The ideal candidate understands new and existing legislation and the funding sources that impact ICTC, including grant funding and applications. This confident and engaging professional will have a strong political acumen and find solutions to critical issues such as controversial topics and regulatory and environmental compliance. The selected candidate will be able to cultivate and implement entrepreneurial approaches to issues identified by member agencies and outside interests, as well as place the Agency in the position as the region’s respected and appropriate arbitrator for how to move forward.
