Media and Interested Parties

Clackamas County Commissioners are seeking interested residents to serve on county Advisory Boards and Commissions (ABCs). These ABCs offer residents the opportunity to become very involved in specific activities and the goals of Clackamas County.

New ABC openings from the past week include:

  • Fair Board: This board has three openings, each of which carries a 3-year term. Members serve in an advisory capacity to the Board of County Commissioners while acting as the policy-making body of the Clackamas County Fairgrounds and Event Center.

    The County Fair Board has the exclusive management of the ground and all other property owned, leased, used, or controlled by the county and devoted to the use of the County Fair. The board is entrusted and charged with the entire business management and financial responsibilities of the Clackamas County Fairgrounds and the Event Center. In order that the fairgrounds and buildings are utilized to the fullest extent, the board at all times has the authority to provide facilities for public and private events throughout the year. Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month in Canby.

    The deadline to apply is Oct. 10. For more information, contact the Fair and Event Center office at 503-266-1136.

Individuals interested in these opportunities can apply online or via a paper form that can be obtained from the Public & Government Affairs Department by calling 503-655-8751 or in person at the Public Services Building at 2051 Kaen Road in Oregon City.
