New ABC openings from the past week include:
Committee for Community Involvement
This committee has six openings each of which carries a three-year term. Members advise the Board of County Commissioners and county staff on the development and coordination of community involvement programs that promote and enhance public participation.
The committee meets on the third Tuesdays of the month in Oregon City. Experience and participation in a community planning organization, hamlet or village is helpful as a majority of the work on this committee is in conjunction with such groups.
