Three At-Large Members shall represent varied economic, social and geographic sectors. The at-large members shall be appointed by the Kern COG Board of Directors. The application for at-large members is available here.

The Regional Transportation Modeling Subcommittee (TMC) of the RPAC oversees the regional transportation model and regional growth forecast. The model is used to forecast the demand for future transportation infrastructure by predicting future travel patterns. Some of the forecast input variables include populations, households, employment, school enrollment, income, traffic counts, speeds, intersection configuration, existing and planned transportation networks. The Regional Transportation Modeling Subcommittee meets concurrently with the RPAC.

The Kern Climate Change Task Force (KCCTF) was formed in 2009 to assist Kern COG and its member agencies to meet the goals and objectives of Senate Bill No. 375 (SB 375).  The Kern Climate Change Task Force was folded into the Transportation Modeling Committee in 2010.
