The Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (District) is a local public agency designated by the California legislature to develop, implement, monitor and enforce local air pollution control rules, regulations and strategies.  Our mission is to achieve state and federal clean air and climate goals.

The Hearing Board is established by state law and consists of five members - an attorney, a professional engineer, a member from the medical profession and two members of the public.

The District is currently recruiting for the Professional Engineer Hearing Board member and the Public Member No. 1 Hearing Board member.


The Hearing Board is scheduled to meet monthly, as needed, to hear and decide upon petitions for variances from rules, regulations or orders of the District.   Also, the Hearing Board will hear petitions for abatement orders and appeals from permitting decisions. 

This is a volunteer position. There is no salary. Members of the Hearing Board receive a stipend of $75.00 per meeting day.


The applicants for the Hearing Board are evaluated based on their qualifications to serve as

representatives for their profession, field of endeavor, or the community, as the case may be.


Hearing Board members serve a term of three years and may be reappointed.  The Hearing Board currently meets as often as three to four times per year depending on the volume of cases filed, usually on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, at the District's office at 777 12th Street, Sacramento, CA 95814.

Interviews are held by the District's Board of Director's Hearing Board Nomination Committee which is tentatively scheduled to conduct interviews (if necessary) on or after May 13, 2019. If you are selected for an interview, our staff will contact you to arrange a meeting time.
