Main Content

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.

Community Road Fund Advisory Committee 

Clackamas County residents, property owners and business people are invited to apply to fill one of seven positions on the county’s Community Road Fund Advisory Committee (CRFAC).  

The 15-member committee, supported by the Department of Transportation and Development, serves in an advisory capacity to the department and to the Board of County Commissioners.

The CRFAC recommends which congestion relief projects in unincorporated Clackamas County should be funded through the Community Road Fund—the revenue from the countywide vehicle registration fee.

The county is looking for applicants from throughout unincorporated Clackamas County, but especially from rural areas (to ensure geographic diversity on the committee), to apply to fill:

  • 5, three-year positions with terms ending June 30, 2026 
  • 1, two-year position with a term ending June 30, 2025
  • 1, one-year position with a term ending June 30, 2024

The positions are open to anyone 18 years of age or older who is resident of the county, a property owner within the county, or a designated representative of a business, corporation, or trust within the county.

The CRFAC meets two to three times a year to:

  • Review the criteria used to identify priority transportation construction projects 
  • Update project lists as road construction projects are completed and as there are changes in project schedules
  • Report the status of the Community Road Fund and projects to the Board of County Commissioners

Application deadline is Oct. 20, 2023. For more information, contact Ellen Rogalin at

Committee for Community Involvement 

The Committee for Community Involvement is looking for two volunteers who are interested in helping the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners and other appropriate governing bodies promote and enhance community involvement in land use planning, assist in funding and in the implementation of the community involvement program. Each volunteer serves a three-year term.

The committee meets virtually, every third Tuesday of each month, from 6 to 8 p.m. We encourage interested to attend a meeting. Experience and participation in a hamlet, community planning organization, or other local government organization is helpful.

Application deadline is Monday, Oct. 30, 2023. For more information, contact Tonia Holowetzki at

Compensation Board for Elected Officials 

Interested in reviewing and recommending elected officials’ salaries? Clackamas County is seeking residents knowledgeable in human resources and compensation administration to serve on the county’s Compensation Board for Elected Officials. There is currently one vacancy on this three-member board. Members serve a four-year term and attend four to five meetings (typically 2 hours each) between February and April.

The Compensation Board for Elected Officials is responsible to conduct an annual review of Clackamas County elected officials' salaries and to submit a recommended compensation schedule to the county’s Budget Committee. Subject salaries include those for the county sheriff, assessor, treasurer, clerk, commissioners, district attorney and justice of the peace.

In order to have balance and diversity of membership, commissioners are looking for members from all backgrounds and areas of Clackamas County.

Application deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2023. For more information contact Heather Pedersen at
