Volunteer Boards and Commissions
Get Involved in Local Government
Every day, decisions made by Calvert County government officials affect you. Now is a great time to get involved. The Board of County Commissioners has established many boards, commissions, and committees that offer Calvert County citizens an avenue to actively participate in local government.
These boards deal with health and welfare, social programs, environmental issues, agricultural preservations, economic development, tourism, architectural review, women's issues, elderly issues, and others.
Vacancies are also published in the local media.
For any application questions, please send an email to Ashley Staples-Reid, Executive Administrative Aide.
