The Calvert Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) has established a Veterans Affairs Commission to advise on issues affecting veterans and promote support services in the county. The Board unanimously approved the measure at their March 23rd meeting.
The new commission will work with the BOCC as well as other public and private entities to ensure representation of veterans in employment, education, training and public programs throughout the county.
“Calvert County has strong and proud ties to the military, and we are pleased to establish this commission so that we can better serve those who have served our nation,” said BOCC President Earl F. “Buddy” Hance.
From the press release:
The BOCC will appoint nine voting members to serve three-year volunteer terms, with a limit of three consecutive full terms. Voting members must be veterans honorably separated from military service. Voting members will consist of one business owner, one educator or educational administrator, one representative from each of the four American Legion posts in Calvert County and three at-large members.
The Veterans Affairs Commission will meet monthly and provide, at minimum, an annual report to the BOCC. Those interested in serving may complete an application form through the Volunteer Boards and Commissions webpage at http://www.CalvertCountyMd.gov/GetInvolved.
