Elrich Seeks Applicants for Commission on Juvenile Justice

County Executive Marc Elrich is seeking applicants to fill 21 public vacancies on the Commission on Juvenile Justice. Ten incumbents are eligible to apply for reappointment.

The 34-member Commission monitors the juvenile justice system and advises the County Executive, County Council and Juvenile Court on matters concerning juveniles. It is responsible for keeping both legislators and citizens informed about juvenile needs. The Commission is also responsible for promoting the general welfare of juveniles under the jurisdiction of the court; making budget recommendations affecting juvenile justice programs; and making periodic visits to State facilities that serve County juveniles. 

Members serve three-year terms without compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for in-person meetings attended. The Board currently meets virtually by video- and teleconference the third Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM-9:00 PM. When in-person meetings resume in the future, the Board will meet in Rockville. 

Applicants of diverse, backgrounds, professions, genders, geography, abilities, ethnicities, and ages are encouraged to apply. Members of County boards, committees and commissions may not serve on more than one such group at a time. Members must complete training on the Maryland Open Meetings Act and basic parliamentary procedure. The County Executive’s appointments are subject to confirmation by the County Council. Applications will be forwarded to the Council for confirmation and may be made public as part of the confirmation process. The deadline for application is June 25, 2021.
