ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Executive Calvin Ball has launched a new, innovative online application system that transforms the way constituents connect with their local government and apply to become members of County boards and commissions. This system aims to streamline the boards and commissions application process, enhance transparency and foster greater community engagement.

Our local boards and commissions are the bedrock of our democratic process and play a pivotal role in shaping the policies, decisions and services that directly impact the lives of our constituents. By providing a digital platform to simplify the application process, we are not only making it easier for our constituents to apply, but we are also empowering them to actively participate in their local government, ensuring a diversity of perspectives, backgrounds and expertise. This new system furthers my administration’s commitment to ensuring an inclusive, transparent and responsible government.

The user-friendly online application allows users to apply directly for membership with one of the County’s boards and commissions. With just a few clicks, interested candidates can complete the application form, provide their qualifications and relevant experience, and submit a statement of interest. This new digital platform also offers a more secure and centralized hub to manage the application process, resulting in a more streamlined and transparent selection process.

“The launch of this new online application system is a testament to our commitment to embrace and utilize technology to enhance civic engagement,” added Ball. “By leveraging digital tools such as this, we aim to remove barriers, increase accessibility and encourage broader participation from all our residents.”
