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 this opportunity can apply online or via a paper form that can be obtained from the Public & Government Affairs Department by calling 503-655-8751.
Clackamas Community Health Council
The Council currently has openings for 14 additional members, comprised of consumers, patients, and clients only. The Council oversees operations, budgets, and quality measures at the Health Centers clinics throughout the county. Per federal requirements, the Council must be composed of a majority of patient members, therefore current patients (or their guardians) will be given priority to join the Council to maintain compliance. The Council conducts business through public meetings that are held from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month in the County’s Development Services Building in Oregon City.
Note: Due to COVID-19, meetings are held in a virtual format until further notice.
Council members are not required to have expertise in healthcare, but should be interested in improving the quality of care and patient experience in the Health Centers. Council members should be comfortable working with a diverse group of people and willing to reach consensus on various topics and make recommendations to Health Centers Leadership and the Board of County Commissioners. Individuals who represent all geographic areas and demographics are highly valued by the Council.
Application deadline is May 31, 2023. For more information, contact Juliana Danforth at email@example.com.

It serves approximately 85,000 residents in the unincorporated areas of Clackamas County within the Urban Growth Boundary, as well as the City of Johnson City. The Enhanced Law Enforcement Service District Budget Committee generally meets during business hours, once a year in May/June. The date and time will be announced later.
