Applicants Needed for Orange County
Human Relations Commission
ORANGE COUNTY, NC (August 17, 2020) – One major way citizens can have a positive impact on the future of Orange County is to volunteer to serve on the various County advisory boards and commissions.
Presently, vacancies exist for One (1) Town of Chapel Hill representative and Three (3) At-Large representatives on the Human Relations Commission.
The Board of County Commissioners appoints all eighteen members. The Towns of Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Hillsborough each nominate at least one member. The Human Relations Commission seeks to prevent and/or eliminate bias and discrimination by means of education, persuasion, conciliation and enforcement. It also advises the Board of County Commissioners on these matters, receives discrimination complaints, and conducts the corresponding investigation of such complaints.
If interested, apply on the Orange County website.
Orange County strives for diversity on volunteer advisory boards. Minorities are encouraged to apply. Applicants must reside in Orange County. Volunteers appointed by the Board of County Commissioners have an opportunity to influence the way of life in Orange County.
