Stipend for BART Directors, Inauguration Date, SF TV Airings?

I posed questions to Ken Duron last week about any fee paid to members of BART's board of directors, when the incumbent exits and new director is inaugurated for District 9, if directors must attend transit conferences beyond the Bay Area and if SFGovTV or any local government cable channel carries BART meetings.

One way to expand the board's engagement with riders and the public would be airing their meetings on all the media platforms and TV outlets of every county government in which BART operates.

Duron is the district secretary and he shared this info with me, which I hope educates voters and gives them more facts about how the board operates:

Directors receive a monthly stipend in the amount of $1,524.97, provided they attend scheduled regular meetings. 3.

President Radulovich will leave office at noon on December 2, 2016. Newly elected Directors may take office at noon on December 2, 2016.

Directors are not required to travel to conferences. They may attend certain public transit related conferences/meetings and be reimbursed for expenses, in accordance with Board Rules and District Management Procedures.

I am not aware of any media outlets that carry BART Board Meetings. I will consult with our Communications Department regarding any concern the District may have to use of video that is available on our website.
