Calaveras Needs Your Help

by

Want to get involved? Here’s how!

At our January monthly meeting, a Committee member presented all of the County’s open Board positions. Several of our members have stepped up and volunteered. You could too!

We’ve listed the Boards/ Committees/ Commissions below. Each group has a link to their current County website which includes a brief description of what they do, who their primary contact is, terms of service, etc.

If you think you might be interested in helping your community by joining one of these groups, we encourage you to attend one of their meetings. It will give you an idea of what the group does, how you could help, and if you feel it would be a good fit for you.

The County maintains a full list of open positions.
