Get involved by applying to one of the County’s boards and commissions

Hands up for volunteering

Every year, Arapahoe County offers its residents and business owners numerous ways to make their voices heard by serving on one of our many citizen boards and committees. Since the majority of these positions expire in February, now is the time to get involved.

To qualify for one of these posts, you must be either a resident or a business owner of real property in Arapahoe County, and additional requirements depend on specific committees’ needs. These positions are appointed by the Arapahoe County Board of Commissioners, so to apply you must complete an application and include a resume. (If you’re interested in more than one committee you must file an application for each position.)

“The Arapahoe County citizen advisory boards, committees and commissions are a tremendous way for qualified individuals to give something back to their communities while also having a say in their future plans,” said Commissioner Nancy Sharpe, chair of the County Board of Commissioners. “Whatever your personal interests and skill set might be, we almost certainly have a committee that could use your help with influencing its direction and priorities.”

There are nearly two dozen volunteer possibilities, in areas including libraries, the Centennial Airport, community services, the Community Corrections Board, public works planning, ethics, open spaces and recreation, and more. Please visit our Boards and Committees page to get more information about opportunities that fit your interests and expertise. By lending your time and knowledge to a particular cause, you’ll be helping sustain the quality of life that makes Arapahoe County such a unique and special place to live and work.
