2013 Committee Evaluation and Review Board Report 

In 2013, the Committee Evaluation and Review Board (CERB) completed its study and evaluation of all Montgomery County’s boards, committees, and commissions and the committee system as a whole. To review CERB’s Final Report, click the link above.

 

The County Executive and County Council encourage people who live or work in Montgomery County to become actively involved in matters affecting the quality of life in Montgomery County. Appointments are made to more than 75 Boards, Committees, and Commissions (BCCs) by the County Executive, with confirmation by the County Council. Generally, BCCs meet one or two evenings per month, have three year terms, and are advisory in nature. Most members of BCCs are not compensated, but mileage and dependent care expenses may be reimbursed. Vacancies are advertised and often published by area newspapers.
