Citizen engagement is a hallmark of any healthy democracy. Colorado just witnessed record voter turnout for the 2020 elections, and now Arapahoe County invites its residents to keep participating via our Citizen Advisory Boards, Committees and Commissions.
Each year, numerous vacancies open up on these groups, which focus on everything from open spaces to libraries to governmental ethics. Many of these vacancies need to be filled by early February, and we invite qualified residents to submit applications for these volunteer positions. Each group has specific requirements around expertise and background—for example, our Community Services Block Grant Advisory Committee is seeking individuals whose annual income is at or below 125% of the Federal Poverty Guideline—so applicants should thoroughly review a board’s qualifications before submitting their materials.
“Arapahoe County is always looking for ways to engage with our residents and business owners, and our boards, committees and commissions are a great way for qualified County residents to get more involved with the decision-making process,” said Arapahoe County Board Chair Nancy N. Sharpe.
If you or someone you know has the background and interest in any of these groups and the desire to play a bigger in making our government work better for our people, please visit our site and apply today.
