WELD COUNTY, CO — If you’re searching for a volunteer opportunity that allows you to help others while increasing your knowledge of local government, please consider serving on a Weld County Advisory Board or Commission. Currently, six boards and commissions have openings, including: the Board of Adjustment, Board of Public Health, Building Trades Advisory Committee, Noxious Weed Management Advisory Board, Weld Faith Partnership Council, and Workforce Development Board.

“We always encourage citizen involvement in county government, and one of the best ways to make a positive impact as a resident is by volunteering on our boards and commissions,” Weld County Chair Steve Moreno said. “We greatly appreciate when residents offer their time and ideas to enhance the many services we provide.”

Don’t know everything about county government or a particular board or commission? That’s OK. While some boards and commissions are seeking residents with a specific background or experience in a field, each is looking for individuals who are passionate, excited to learn more about county programs, and who want to contribute their time, talent and ideas to ensure government services continue to meet residents’ needs and expectations.

These opportunities provide citizens with a chance to work alongside each other and county staff to share ideas about how services can be strengthened to have the greatest benefit. Volunteering is a great way to enhance your knowledge of county government and become an advocate for the many programs and services that Weld County Government offers to residents.

An application and complete description of each board and commission opening can be found at https://www.weldgov.com/Government/County-Governance/Boards-and-Commissions/Current-Openings. Applications will be accepted through November 14.
