The nine members of the Executive Committee are chosen by the Board of Directors, and are elected as president, vice president, and seven at-large directors to oversee the Authority’s affairs. The Executive Committee meets monthly to review and approve policies related to the California JPIA’s many programs and services. In addition, the Executive Committee also carries out ex-officio responsibility for Claims, Budget, Bylaws and JPA, and Personnel committees. Chairs for the Authority’s advisory committees, Managers and Finance Officers, are also participants in Executive Committee and Claims Committee meetings.
