Volunteer on a Worcester County Board or Commission



Worcester County Government Volunteer

Worcester County Government (WCG) encourages those interested in becoming more involved in the community to volunteer on a Worcester County board or commission. Members are appointed by the County Commissioners to fill two types of vacancies: seats that represent each of the seven election districts, and open seats that may be filled by residents throughout Worcester County.

Current district seats are available on the following boards and commissions:

  • District Four (Western District) – one seat is available on the Tourism Advisory Committee
  • District Five (Ocean Pines District) – seats are available on the Social Services Advisory Board, and Water & Sewer Advisory Council for Ocean Pines
  • District Seven (Ocean City) – one seat is available on the Social Services Advisory Board

Current open seats that may be filled by residents countywide include the Drug and Alcohol Abuse Council (3) and Local Development Council for Ocean Downs Casino (1).

In the event that WCG receives more individuals interested in volunteering for a particular committee than there are available seats, the Commissioners will maintain an interest list to help fill future vacancies.

For more information about WCG boards and commissions, contact Karen Hammer at 410-632-1194. To volunteer to serve, please send a letter of interest, along with a resume or cover letter outlining any pertinent experience, to or Worcester County Administration at One West Market Street, Room 1103, Snow Hill, Maryland 21863.
