Loudoun County government has many advisory boards, commissions, and committees which provide opportunities for direct involvement in local government by residents of Loudoun County. The Board of Supervisors recognizes and celebrates the diversity of Loudoun County and encourages all individuals to apply to serve on Board-appointed committees and commissions.
Many advisory boards are comprised of At-Large seats which have no residency requirements, but may require appointees to have specific areas of expertise and/or representation. Other advisory boards are comprised of both At-Large appointees and electoral District representatives (the latter requiring applicants to live in the district for which the advisory position exists).
In general, Loudoun Coalition Member Organizations are under-represented on advisory boards, commissions & committees. Now is the time to “GET ON BOARD.“
