Welcome to the January 2017 edition of the People Engaged in Raising Leaders (P.E.R.L.) monthly newsletter. This newsletter is meant to keep PERL graduates informed about new board and commission opportunities in Boulder County. We also invite non profit organizations, businesses, and city and county commissions to share these opportunities when they open up. If you are interested in submitting board opportunities, please contact:


Winter recruitment for Boulder County's Boards and Commissions is underway! Advisory boards and commissions help advise the county commissioners and other elected offices and departments on matters concerning public administration, planning, budgeting, and other functions of local governance.

There are currently 19 Boards and Commissions that have 48 available spots. The deadline to apply is January 17th, so please visit the webpage here to take a look at all the openings and apply!

Boulder County recently compared the demographics on our advisory boards and commissions to countywide census information.

The Community Corrections Board is especially seeking new members who will be responsible for:

  • Establishing policies and procedures for ‘diversion’ screening placements with facilities.
  • Screening ‘transition’ offenders referred from the Department of Corrections
  • Providing oversight of local community corrections programs.

For more information, please contact: Brian Ball, Community Corrections Coordinator, at 303.441.3691 with any questions
