The business of the Bus Industry Safety Council (BISC) is governed by an Executive Committee. The Executive Committee coordinates the work flow and direction of the BISC Standing Committees and plans each of the education sessions for the Winter and Summer BISC meetings (and BISC West) as well as periodic webinars/conference calls.
Each year, the members of the BISC elect a portion of the Executive Committee to serve in this leadership role. The terms of the Executive Commitee members are staggered to assist with the continuity in planning for BISC education sessions and events, as well as to also ensure a constant infusion of fresh talent, ideas, and new safety leaders.
The positions listed below are up for election for 2-year terms running from 2023-2024. As we have done in past years, the BISC will again be holding an online election to select new members to join our BISC leadership.
