Ms. McAdam has served as the Executive Director of the PCTPA since 1998 and as Executive Director of the South Placer Regional Transportation Authority since its formation in 2001.  Ms. McAdam previously served as Senior Planner for PCTPA in the early 1990s and also held management positions with the City of San Jose and Butte County Association of Governments.  She also holds a professional certification from the American Institute of Certified Planners.
