      The League of Women Voters of the Bay Area and of Southwest Santa Clara
      Invite You to a
      Regional Governance Workshop
      with Nick Bollman
      How does regional governance without a regional government work?

      Agilent Technologies, Building 50, Conference Room 1

      Explore the roles of the Association of Bay Area Governments and the
      Metropolitan Transportation Commission in relation to subregional agencies,
      Valley Transportation Authority and Caltrain. Other regional bodies -- Bay
      Area Air Quality Management District, Regional Water Quality Control
      District, and Bay Area Conservation and Development Commission-- may also be
      in contention with YOU as Saturday Morning Commissioners.
      As a Saturday Morning Commissioner you will have a menu of powers and
      resources of your commission. With other Saturday Morning Commissioners,
      you can decide to fund projects, improve regulations, provide incentives or
      sound off on what should be done in the Bay Area.
      � Appraise the ability of the regional agencies to plan and manage regional
      transportation, air quality, water quality and the balance and spread of
      � See which locally elected officials have accumulated the most hats on
      regional boards and how that affects regional governance.
      � See whether your part of the Bay Area is adequately represented on
      regional bodies.
      � Have more fun than the real Commissioners
      As a participant you will be able to inform your impressions with the wisdom
      of a very talented speaker: Nick Bollman. Nick Bollman is the President
      and CEO of California Center for Regional Leadership. Mr. Bollman was
      Senior Program Director for the James Irvine Foundation; devising a
      Sustainable Communities program with grants totaling nearly $38 million.
      Recently, he mediated discussions on combining the Metropolitan
      Transportation Commission with the Association of Bay Area Governments. Mr.
      Bollman is a 1967 graduate of Harvard College. He holds a Master of Arts
