Human Resources Committee

The WSTA Human Resources Roundtable (or Committee) was formed in 1996 and meets two or three times each year, rotating the responsibility of playing host among the represented transit agencies. Committee participation is open to human resource professionals of our member agencies.

Committee Leadership

The HR Committee is lead by the Chair Marianne Rajan, Kitsap Transit and Vice Chair Michele Zlotek, Whatcom Transportation Authority . Secretarial duties are the responsibility of the hosting agency.
