Trust Lands Advisory Committee

Representatives from districts that are most affected by school trust land issues assist the WSSDA Board of Directors to ensure that trust land revenues are maximized to benefit school construction and remodeling. The Trust Lands Advisory Committee meets or conducts conference calls several times a year on an as-needed basis.
