Clark County is accepting applications to fill a vacancy on the Parks Advisory Board. The term would begin upon appointment and end Dec. 31, 2025.

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.

Applicants must be residents of Clark County. The county is looking for applicants from historically underserved or underrepresented populations including people who can bring ethnic, cultural and geographic diversity to the group. A board member located in north Clark County or in a rural area is preferred to assist with geographic diversity.

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 socioeconomic backgrounds. Although not required, candidates who can fluently speak a language in addition to English are encouraged to include that information in their application.

The advisory board meets the second Tuesday of each month, usually at the Luke Jensen Sports Complex at 4000 N.E. 78th St. in Vancouver. Meetings are held in a hybrid format using Microsoft Teams in conjunction with in-person gatherings.

To apply, submit a brief letter of interest and resume to Michelle Pfenning, County Manager’s Office, P.O. Box 5000, Vancouver, WA 98666-5000 or by email at michelle.pfenning@clark.wa.gov.

The application deadline is 5 p.m. July 14.
