Appointments are made to over 75 Boards, Committees, and Commissions (B/C/Cs) by the County Executive, with confirmation by the County Council. Generally, B/C/Cs meet one or two evenings per month, have three year terms, and most are advisory in nature. Most members of B/C/Cs are not compensated, but mileage and dependent care expenses may be reimbursed. Vacancies are advertised and often published by area newspapers.
