Volunteer to serve on a community citizen advisory board
Information provided by Douglas County
Local residents looking to make a difference in the community have an opportunity to serve on one of Douglas County’s many citizen advisory boards, committees or commissions.
From the Cultural Council to the Planning Commission, volunteer members provide subject matter expertise and experience that is vital to the County’s decision-making process.
Serving through one of these three outlets is a hands-on way for citizens to engage in the County’s governance and serve the community.
