Commonly referred to as the “East Bay,” the region has been the fastest growing in the San Francisco Bay area for more than two decades.  The East Bay is popular because of its desirable location, incredible diversity, ideal climate, broad economic base, plus its range of available housing and business opportunities. The County itself is one of the most diverse regions in the country.

The new director must provide an active, engaged and team based leadership style with a strong operational and administrative background and a vision for the future.
