Contra Costa Alcohol & Other Drugs Advisory Board Seeks New Members
Monday, May 22, 2023
The Contra Costa County Alcohol & Other Drugs Advisory Board seeks applicants to fill several open seats. The board is comprised of 11 volunteer members and three volunteer alternates. All members are appointed by the Contra Costa Board of Supervisors.
The advisory board addresses family and community needs regarding prevention, treatment and recovery from alcohol and other drug use. It reports its findings to Contra Costa Health (CCH), the Board of Supervisors and community partners.
Applicants must be 16 or older and live in Contra Costa County. We currently seek applicants from Supervisorial Districts 1 and 4, as well as for at-large and at-large alternate seats.
Advisory board members meet the fourth Wednesday of each month from 4 p.m. to 6:15 p.m., and are expected to serve on subcommittees which meet every month or every other month. Meeting times and locations may vary to encourage participation from various segments of the community. Members usually serve three-year terms.
The advisory board offers the opportunity to directly address substance use in Contra Costa County by helping local government develop and improve policies regarding alcohol and other drugs. The board produces an annual report and selects recipients for the annual People Who Make a Difference awards.
