Boards & Commissions

Community members who require special assistance
to participate in a committee meeting are asked to contact
the meeting facilitator at least 4 business days in advance.

Volunteer boards, commissions and committees serve our community by advising policy makers and providing essential support to county programs and activities. Each board and commission has a specific purpose and is governed by operating statutes. Serving on a Whatcom County board, committee or commission affords citizens the opportunity to participate in the countywide effort to address many important issues.

The Whatcom County Council and County Executive make appointments.
