ORANGE COUNTY, NC (January 18, 2023) – One way residents can positively impact the future of Orange County is to serve on a volunteer board or commission.
The Orange County Board of Commissioners is currently accepting applications from Orange County residents who are licensed dentists in order to fill a Dental Representative vacancy on the Board of Health.
The Board of Health is the primary policy-making, rule-making, and adjudicatory body for the Health Department and is charged with protecting and promoting the public health of Orange County. The Board is mandated by state law and is composed of professionals representing specified health-related fields in addition to several at-large members.
The Board of Health typically meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm. There are also occasional ad-hoc meetings that average less than two hours per month. An appointment is for three years, and a board member can serve three terms.
