The Board of Supervisors appointments list and annual schedule of vacancies (seats that are scheduled to become open) is maintained by the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors. In addition, unscheduled advisory body vacancies are posted on the Bulletin Board in the foyer of the County Administration Building, 651 Pine Street, Martinez, in the Pleasant Hill and Concord libraries, and at Delta 2000. This site provides information on each advisory body, rosters, and both scheduled and unscheduled vacancies, current as of the date indicated on each report.
To be considered for appointment to a vacant seat on a Board advisory body, an application must be completed and submitted to the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors Office. To get information on this site about advisory body vacancies, you may check the annual Vacancy Schedule, which shows scheduled vacancies for all advisory bodies, or go to the Advisory Body Index and view the current vacancies for a particular advisory body.
If you have an interest in a specific board, committee or commission and no vacancy is shown, please contact the advisory body staff person, who is identified on the Information View for each advisory body. For general information, please contact the
Deputy Clerk of the Board of Supervisors at telephone: (925) 335-1907.
Applicants must represent the constituency for a vacant advisory body seat. Generally, there are three types of constituencies associated with each advisory body seat.
- Supervisorial District Appointments: Many of the advisory boards,
commissions and committees have position s based on residency in a
specific supervisorial district. Applications for such appointments
are reviewed and recommendations are made by the Supervisor
representing that district.
- At Large Appointments: Many positions are open to applicants
without regard to residency in a specific supervisorial district.
When more than one application has been received for such a vacancy,
the advisory body typically screens applications and/or conducts
interviews, and nominates a candidate to the Internal Operations
Committee of the Board of Supervisors. The Internal Operations
Committee may either approve the nomination and forward a
recommendation to the Board of Supervisors for appointment, or may
conduct its own interviews and make a separate recommendation to the
- Community Based Appointments: Certain appointments are based upon
specific affiliation with a group or community. For example,
participation on the San Ramon Valley Regional Planning Commission
requires that commissioners be residents of the unincorporated area
covered by the San Ramon Valley General Plan of 1977. The Board of
Supervisors receives and generally accepts the recommendations from
the specific constituency to be represented when making these
