County seeks applicants for Community Action Advisory Board
Vancouver, Wash. – The county manager is seeking applicants to fill several vacant positions on the volunteer Community Action Advisory Board.
The twelve-member board makes recommendations about local government funding for basic needs, self-sufficiency, and housing programs. Members also advocate for services supporting low-income communities, families and persons.
All open positions are for individuals who live in the county’s third district and include an elected official, a low-income representative and a community representative.
Term periods are three years, ending on a staggered basis. Incumbents have the opportunity for re-appointment to two additional three-year terms. Board members of agencies receiving money administered by the advisory board are not eligible to apply.
Clark County is looking to diversify the board composition and encourages people with diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to apply, especially those from historically underserved communities.
Interested residents must submit an application and résumé to Rebecca Royce, Clark County Community Services, P.O. Box 5000, Vancouver, WA 98666-5000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application information can be found at www.clark.wa.gov/community-services/community-action-advisory-board or by calling Rebecca Royce at 564.397.7863.
Deadline is Friday, Feb. 15.
