Boards & Commissions

Connect to the Volunteer Boards and Commissions portal Opens in new windowPublic involvement is fundamental to good government, and service through Jefferson County’s volunteer boards and commissions is an effective way for citizens to provide valuable input and make a positive impact to our community. The Board of County Commissioners appoints more than 300 citizens to serve on boards and commissions covering a wide variety of issues.  

Open positions are accepted annually, typically each July, with evaluations in August and appointments in late September for staggered terms. Some boards and commissions require certain knowledge or experience – please reference the individual board pages for more information and any prerequisites.

To learn more about our 30+ boards and commissions, visit the Boards page via the 'Volunteer Portal' graphic above.
