Learn about government services by volunteering

Any Weld County resident looking for a volunteer opportunity that allows them to learn about and positively contribute to improving government services should consider volunteering on a Weld County Advisory Board or Commission. There are currently openings on: The Building Trades Advisory Committee, Planning Commission, Workforce Development Board, Juvenile Community Review Board and the Weld Faith Partnership Council.

Advisory board and commission members gain a greater understanding of how county government works and greater awareness of the many government services available to residents.

Board and commission members also have the opportunity to offer ideas and perspectives on how to promote or strengthen government services. Through volunteering, relationships will be formed with county staff and with fellow volunteers throughout the county who are each working to make government services as responsive and beneficial to residents’ needs as possible.

“We are proud to offer many different services to residents, and it’s important that those services remain efficient, effective and beneficial,” Weld County Commissioner Chair Barbara Kirkmeyer said. “The feedback provided by volunteers ensures our services are not only meeting residents’ needs now, but that they are also being strengthened and improved upon to continue meeting needs in the future.”

Take a hands-on approach to improving the services that many residents depend on! An application and complete board and commission descriptions can be found by visiting, https://tinyurl.com/WCBoardsCommissions-openings. Applications will be accepted through Monday, October 28.
