Six advisory boards and commissions seek new membersLooking for a way to expand your knowledge, meet new people, and make a positive impact on the services provided by Weld County Government? Consider volunteering on a board or commission! There are currently openings on the Extension Advisory Council, Area Agency on Aging, Board of Public Health, Building Trades Advisory Committee, Workforce Development Board, and Weld Faith Partnership Council.

Serving on a board or commission allows residents the opportunity to work together and with county staff to develop ideas on how county services can be strengthened or best implemented to have the greatest benefit. Citizen involvement also ensures the continued effectiveness of services offered.

“It’s critical that the services provided to our citizens are operating in the best manner possible. That goal is best achieved by residents working together on advisory boards and commissions,” Weld County Commissioner Chair Steve Moreno said. “It’s a direct way to get involved, work with county government, and serve as an advocate for our services to others throughout the county.”

Extensive knowledge of county government is not necessary to volunteer. While some boards and commissions are seeking individuals with specific backgrounds, an applicant’s desire to learn about government and contribute ideas on how to solve issues is equally important.

“Serving is a way to make contacts and expand relationships and those opportunities to partner,” said Weld County Commissioner Julie Cozad, commissioner representative on the Weld Faith Partnership Council. “Part of the benefit is being part of a larger organization that’s helping to solve a problem.”

Don’t miss out on unique volunteer opportunities! An application and complete descriptions of each board and commission are available here. For more information, please contact Karla Ford at 970-336-7204 or by emailing kford@weldgov.com.
