Media and Interested Parties

Clackamas County Commissioners are seeking interested residents to serve on county Advisory Boards and Commissions (ABCs). These ABCs offer residents the opportunity to become very involved in specific activities and the goals of Clackamas County.

New ABC openings from the past week include:

  • Leaders for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Council: This council is seeking volunteers to fill five openings, each of which carries a 3-year term. The council envisions a county in which equity and inclusion are at the forefront of all decision-making, and in which all community members are actively engaged. Specifically, the council strives to examine county processes in order to recommend and facilitate changes that foster greater inclusiveness, develop leadership from diverse communities, increase community participation in county government, and promote and support diversity awareness and education. Council members are meant to be representative of the county’s diverse populations and ideally will represent different work experiences, educational backgrounds, religious beliefs and affiliations, geographic locations, socioeconomic statuses, ethnicities, physical abilities or other diversity. Council members meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 5:30-7:30 p.m. 

    The deadline for applications is Aug. 24. For more information, contact Equity Services & Community Engagement Coordinator Maria Magallon at 503-650-5693 or mariamag@clackamas.us.
