The advisory board makes recommendations about local government funding for basic needs, self-sufficiency and housing programs
VANCOUVER – The county manager is seeking applicants to fill several positions on the volunteer Community Action Advisory Board.
The board is made up of an elected official, a community representative and a low-income representative from each of the five county council districts. There also is one member at large.
Current open positions include:
- Elected officials from the county’s fourth and fifth districts
- Low-income representatives from the county’s third, fourth and fifth districts
- Community representatives from the county’s first, third and fourth districts.
Term periods start Jan. 1, 2023, and are three years, ending Dec. 31, 2025. Incumbents have the opportunity for re-appointment to two additional three-year terms.
The advisory 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 at local, state and federal levels.
Clark County is looking to diversify the board composition and encourage people with diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to apply, especially people of color and from historically oppressed or under-resourced communities.
