The Office of Community Involvement is currently accepting applications for a vacancy on the Community Involvement Committee (CIC). The CIC is a group of 15 volunteers from throughout Multnomah County who are appointed by the Board of Commissioners. The committee advises the county on timely, equitable and inclusive civic participation in county policy, and facilitates communication between the public and county government.

The CIC plays a crucial role in bringing community voice into county decision-making. CIC members engage in an ongoing study and discussion of the county's priorities, programs, and procedures. Together, the committee makes recommendations directly to the Board of Commissioners and county departments about opportunities for community engagement and removing barriers to participation.

There is currently an opening for an at large member, who may reside in any district in Multnomah County. 

Eligibility

At large members must be residents of Multnomah County and be nominated by an incorporated community organization.

You must also be available to attend monthly CIC meetings, which are generally every third Tuesday in the evening. 

How to Apply

To apply, complete the online application. Nomination letters should be emailed to community.involvement@multco.us. Applications should be submitted no later than 5pm on February 5, 2018 to meet the first review deadline. Following the deadline, we will continue to review applications on a rolling basis until the vacancy is filled.
