TRPC Technical Advisory Committee Bylaws



The purpose of the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is to advise the Transportation Policy Board (TPB), Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC), and TRPC staff on technical considerations relating to transportation issues pursuant to state and federal legislation.


The TAC shall be comprised of staff from jurisdictions that provide general purpose transportation facilities and services in the Thurston Region. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, Thurston County, its cities and town, Intercity Transit, WSDOT Olympic Region, the Nisqually Indian Tribe, the Confederated Tribes of the Chehalis Reservation, and the Port of Olympia.

Participation is voluntary. Eligible jurisdictions will be contacted annually at the beginning of each calendar year to confirm their interest in actively participating in the TAC.

More than one staff member from each jurisdiction may attend and participate in TAC meetings.

TRPC staff members are participants, but not voting members, of the TAC. TRPC staff members are the key point of contact between the TAC and the TPB and TRPC.


TAC shall annually elect a Chair and Vice Chair at the first meeting of each calendar year. The Chair shall:

·         Represent TAC with TRPC staff at TPB and TRPC meetings, as necessary.

·         Preside over a call to vote at TAC meetings.


The Vice Chair is responsible for the duties of the Chair in the absence of the Chair.


Voting shall be used to elect a chair and vice chair, and in amending the bylaws. Voting may be used when consensus on an issue or recommendation cannot be reached. The vote is decided by a simple majority.

Each member jurisdiction present at the time a vote is called shall have one vote.

A call to vote may be requested by any member jurisdiction present and conducted at the direction of the TAC Chair, or if absent, the Vice Chair. If the TAC Chair and Vice Chair are absent, TRPC staff will conduct the vote.

Voting may be used when consensus cannot be reached. If such a vote is called, all minority views shall be recorded and presented when a majority recommendation is forwarded to the TPB or TRPC.


The TAC shall meet as often as required to accomplish tasks. TAC meetings will generally be held on Thursdays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Any change in meeting time or day will be discussed with the TAC prior to scheduling.

TRPC staff will facilitate the TAC meetings, and will distribute an agenda and staff reports/attachments one week in advance of a meeting. TAC members will contact TRPC staff if they have items for the agenda.


Amendments to these bylaws shall be approved by a vote, in accordance with the voting procedure above. Adopted: July 17, 2014
