Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?” If you’d like to brighten up your resume in response to that question, the good folks of Cass County would love to hear from you.
Cass County has openings on a number of Boards and Commissions and is currently seeking volunteers to serve on those Boards and Commissions. Certain skills, interests and qualifications are helpful for applicants to possess. Knowledge of finance, building construction, owning a business, an interest in history and the environment are important assets for the various County opportunities for volunteers.
On a recent occasion, Cass County Administrator Jeff Carmen commented, “The importance of the various Boards and Commissions to the economy and welfare of Cass County cannot be overstated.” If you are a Cass County resident and have an interest in applying for one of the Boards or Commissions, you can go to http://casscountymi.org and in the upper right hand corner find the Search section. Type in Boards and Commissions and click on Boards and Commissions Application. The application will come up and it can be filled in and submitted electronically.
There are openings on the following Boards and Commissions:
- Building Authority
- Department of Human Services/Medical Care Facility Board
- Historical Commission
- Economic Development Corporation
- Solid Waste Planning Committee
Openings often pop up on other Boards and Commissions and the entire list of all volunteer opportunities can be found on the County website. Cass County Board Chair Roseann Marchetti says, “Serving on one of the various Boards or Commissions is a great way to learn about Cass County, besides sharing your skills and talents, and having a positive impact on the community.”
