Are you a natural problem solver who cares about citizen involvement in government? Would you like to help us improve communications through both new and traditional technologies? Are you a member of a community that would like more access to information?
The Washington County Committee for Citizen Involvement (CCI), on behalf of the County’s Citizen Participation Organizations (CPOs), is forming a new committee to improve access to the information necessary to participate effectively in local government. We are looking for 6-8 citizens to join the CCI Communications Committee, which includes staff members from the County and the CPO Program.
Committee focus: Effective public participation depends on access to information, and the digital age presents a host of new possibilities and questions. This committee will examine issues, develop and review ideas, and give suggestions for improvements for:
Backgrounds and experiences sought for the committee’s citizen members: Washington County residents are sought.
Meetings: Monthly meetings are envisioned at the Washington County Public Services Building, 155 North First Avenue, Hillsboro, OR 97124, in downtown Hillsboro. Our location is well-served by TriMet.
To get involved: Tell us a little bit about yourself and why you’d like to serve on this committee using this questionnaire, www.surveymonkey.com/s/CommunicationsCommittee. You can also request a copy of the questionnaire by email, or you can schedule an interview to submit your information.
