County Executive Isiah Leggett is seeking applicants to fill six vacancies on the Commission on Child Care. One vacancy is for a member of the business community or general public, two vacancies are for a parent of a child receiving child care, and three vacancies are for providers of child care services. The six incumbents are eligible to apply for reappointment.
The 25-member Commission advises the County Executive and County Council on government policies, programs and services that enhance community support for high quality, affordable and accessible child care. The Commission also helps the County’s Department of Health and Human Services develop initiatives to help families meet their child care needs.
Members serve three-year terms without compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for meetings attended. The full Commission meets the third Wednesday of each month, and subcommittee meetings are also held the first Wednesday of each month.
Applicants of diverse backgrounds, professions, gender, geography, disability and ethnicity are encouraged to apply. An application, consisting of a brief cover letter and resume, should be sent by mail to County Executive Isiah Leggett, 101 Monroe Street, 2nd Floor, Rockville, MD 20850, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Home and employment addresses, as well as contact phone numbers and email addresses should be included. If appropriate, applicants should indicate the position for which they are applying. The deadline for application is January 28, 2013.
Members of County boards, committees and commissions may not serve on more than one such group at a time. Leggett’s appointments are subject to confirmation by the County Council. Applications of those selected for appointment are made public as part of the confirmation process.
