County Executive Isiah Leggett is seeking applicants to fill seven vacancies on the Commission on Health for consumer and provider representatives. Four incumbent consumer representatives are eligible to apply for reappointment.
The commission consists of 19 voting members, representing a cross section of consumers and providers of health care. The majority of the members must not be providers. Persons with an interest or background in public health are encouraged to apply. The commission advises the County Executive and County Council on public health programs, services, and facilities, and comments on any gaps, deficiencies or duplication of efforts. The group reports each year to the Executive and Council on a variety of health issues.
Members serve three-year terms without compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for meetings attended. Meetings are held the third Thursday evening of each month at 6:00 PM in Rockville.
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 May 22, 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.
