The King County Finance and Business Operations Division (BDCC) is soliciting applications for its Priority Hire Advisory Committee (KCPHAC).  This committee will operate in an advisory role for the implementation and effectiveness of the County’s Priority Hire program. 
The Priority Hire program is designed to prioritize the recruitment and placement of economically disadvantaged local workers on King County public works construction projects estimated at $5 million or more. The program is intended to help address construction workforce shortages, diversify the construction workforce and improve the well-being of individuals who live in geographic areas of economic distress.

The KCPHAC consists of 12 members appointed by the Executive and confirmed by the King County Council.

The committee endeavors “to include representatives with experience in the construction industry from: contractors; The Associated General Contractors of Washington; labor union representatives; small contractor and supplier businesses; pre-apprentice and apprentice training providers; and local community or business organizations.” (King County Ordinance, File #: 2017-0450, Section 5, Page 10).

We are searching for representatives from diverse communities of King County to achieve a balance of race, sex, disabilities, point-of-view, geographical area, and the specific needs of the board/committee. 

The committee meets in person quarterly with a virtual option. The commitment is for three years with the option of a two-year extension. Committee members must live in King County.
