Appointments

The Lake County Board Chair appoints more than 300 people to serve on various boards, commissions, and other special purpose units of government ranging from drainage and fire districts, to the transportation service boards, human services boards and the Board of Review.

Volunteer to Serve on a Government Board


When citizens participate in government, it enhances transparency, openness, as well as effectiveness because government officials benefit from citizens' input, perspective, and expertise. The Lake County Board is seeking volunteers to appoint to various boards, agencies, and commissions.

Standards of Conduct


As the appointing authority for over 70 local appointed units of government, the Chairman of the Lake County Board has established Standards for Appointees (PDF) that our nearly 300 appointees are required to follow.
