Associate Supervisor Positions Open

We are currently accepting applications for Associate Supervisors.

Associate Supervisors are a key component of the District’s interactions and communication with our community and the residents we serve. 

Associates can serve as advisers to the Board in an area of expertise, represent a sector of our community or an industry, assist with special committees, and support other District initiatives as directed by the Board of Supervisors. 

Associate Supervisors do not have the authority to vote on the board’s official actions but are a critical component to the success of our organization.
