The Hillsborough County Commission is seeking applicants for its Diversity Advisory Council.
The council was created to facilitate communication between Hillsborough County government and diverse populations, and to address matters related to diversity that affect County government and its citizens.
The county board appoints council members who represent a number of categories.
There currently are five vacancies on the board, in these categories: Caribbean; Indian Asian; Middle Eastern; Native American; and Northern and Southern European.
Advisory council members are volunteers and serve for two years.
All nominees must live in Hillsborough County and be registered voters.
The council meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m.
Those interested in applying must submit:
- An essay of 200-500 words highlighting what your goals would be as a member of the Diversity Advisory Council and state why you are most suited to carry forth those goals.
- A completed Questionnaire for Diversity Advisory Council
- A Standards of Conduct Form
Forms are available on the County’s website at: HCFLGov.net. To download a form, click on the following tabs/links: “Government,” “Boards and Committees Forms.” The forms can be filled out and printed, then scanned and emailed, faxed, or mailed.
All forms must be signed and dated, and all questions must be answered in entirety to be eligible. Applicants declining to submit an essay will be eliminated from further consideration for service on the Diversity Advisory Council of Hillsborough County.
The deadline for applications is the close of business on Oct. 12. The county board is scheduled to make the appointments in November.
