Did you know there are 38 boards, committees, and authorities that operate  in Delaware County government? Did you know they look for regular everyday citizens to fill posts on the those entities?

Many of them have multiple positions with terms that run from 2 to 5 years. Occasionally, when terms expire, people move on and they need to be replaced. Or, people terminate their positions early leaving a vacancy to fill. 

I don’t know how positions were filled in the past, but now, you can apply when an opening becomes available. Sometimes, folks don’t know where to look for the openings or miss them when they appear in the local papers. 

That’s where this blog post comes in handy.

Here’s three organizations seeking at least 6 individuals for spots to fill. 

Good luck!
