The letter and résumé should be submitted by e-mail to Evelyn Dalby, board secretary at or mailed to her attention at MiraCosta College, 1 Barnard Drive, Oceanside, CA, 92056.
Applications may also be delivered in person to the Administration Building (Building 1000) on the Oceanside Campus. The deadline for applying is March 6. The new trustee will be sworn in no later than April 6.
