Appointments and Briefings
When a new State Transportation Board member is appointed by the governor, the director and board chair will contact the new member to offer assistance through the senate confirmation and final appointment.
The director, after conferring with the chair, will schedule a briefing session as soon as practical with the chair and the new board member. This briefing session may precede senate confirmation to enable the new member to be prepared fully for voting membership once the appointment process is concluded.
On behalf of the board, the director will forward to the new member copies of appropriate printed material about the department, including the board’s most recent five-year construction program for highways and airports, instructions from the assistant to the State Transportation Board on details of board membership such as expense claims and travel orders, and detailed information regarding the time and location of the next board meeting.
The director, when possible, will schedule for the new board member a tour of his or her district and a walking tour of the ADOT Headquarters facilities.
