Meetings

One Friday morning per quarter, from 10:00 am-noon, depending on availability of members.

All City meetings are currently remote.  Listen live by dialing 1-510-335-7371.

Members

The LTAC consists of seven members nominated by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. 

  • One member must be a City Council Member serving as Chair
  • Three members must be hoteliers
  • Three members must be representatives of arts, cultural, historic, or business entities that might benefit from a grant of the tax revenue

LTAC Membership Process

When there is an open position on the LTAC, the Tourism Program Administrator requests application(s) for LTAC membership. The Mayor interviews a selected candidate and makes a recommendation on the candidate’s membership to the City Council. The City Council interviews the candidate prior to a regular Council meeting, and votes on the candidate’s membership at a subsequent Council meeting. If approved, the candidate becomes an LTAC member.
