Clark County 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 District 4 and District 5 and low-income representatives from District 3, District 4 and District 5.

Term periods start Jan. 1, 2023, and are three years, ending Dec. 31, 2025.

The 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 people at local, state and federal levels.

Clark County is looking to diversify the board composition and encourages people with diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to apply, especially people of color and from historically oppressed or under-resourced communities.

Submit an application and resume to Rebecca Royce, Clark County Community Services, P.O. Box 5000, Vancouver, WA 98666-5000 or rebecca.royce@clark.wa.gov. The application deadline is Oct. 11.
