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.
Individuals interested in these opportunities can apply online or via a paper form that can be obtained from the Public & Government Affairs Department by calling 503-655-8751 or in person at the Public Services Building at 2051 Kaen Road in Oregon City.
New ABC openings from the past week include:
Clackamas County Budget Committee
This committee has openings for two positions, each of which carries a three-year term. The committee meets monthly to review and discuss budget-related matters. The committee also holds a series of meetings in May and/or June to review and approve a budget for the upcoming fiscal year. The county operates on a July 1 to June 30 fiscal year. Applicants for the position must be residents of the county. In order to have balance and diversity of membership representation in terms of geographic area, gender and experience, commissioners seek volunteers from all backgrounds and areas of the county.
The application deadline is June 30. For more information, please contact Elizabeth Comfort at email@example.com.
Leaders for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Council
This council is seeking volunteers to fill twelve openings that carry three-year terms. 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 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Applications are due no later than Aug. 21. For more information, please contact Maria Magallon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
