Clark County is accepting applications to fill three vacancies on a seven-member Parks Advisory Board for terms that begin January 1, 2021.
Board members serve three-year terms. Upon expiration of a term, a member can apply again. There is no limit on how many terms a member can serve. The Parks Advisory Board advises the Clark County Council and county staff on parks planning, acquisition, development, and related issues. Applicants must be residents of Clark County.
Volunteers with a passion for parks, working knowledge of recreational facilities, and the ability to commit to volunteer hours beyond monthly board meetings are encouraged to apply. The county also is looking for people who can bring ethnic, cultural, social, and geographic diversity to the group. The board encourages applications from candidates with knowledge, ability, and experience working with a broad range of individuals and communities with diverse racial, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds.
The advisory board meets from 4:00 to 6:00 PM the second Tuesday of each month. The board typically meets at the Public Works Operations Center. As needed, the board may hold meetings virtually using WebEx.
Interested applicants should submit a brief letter of interest and résumé to Michelle Pfenning, County Manager’s Office, P.O. Box 5000, Vancouver, WA 98666-5000 or by email at [email protected].
Application deadline is 5:00 PM Friday, October 30, 2020.
