KCD’s Advisory Committee extends KCD’s reach into our broad community of stakeholders by bringing diverse and expanded perspectives back to KCD’s Board of Supervisors. The Advisory Committee deliberates on policy issues and forwards recommendations to KCD’s Board of Supervisors. The Committee is made up of delegates from local government, NGOs, and community members.
KCD is looking to fill open seats that are designated for rural residents, urban residents, and environmental NGO leaders. We are looking for diverse voices and experiences to help ensure that we are being guided by a body that represents the communities we serve.
Advisory Committee participants are volunteers and are not compensated. KCD will convene 2 virtual meetings in 2020 and 4 quarterly meetings in 2021 and beyond. The structure of these meetings will evolve as our community addresses COVID-19.
If you are interested in joining KCD’s Advisory Committee, please contact Mark.Dostal@kingcd.org with a letter of interest and brief description of your background. The available seats will be filled at the discretion of KCD as candidates are selected.
