What is the term of office for CAB members?
Citizen Advisory Board (CAB) members are selected with the intent to provide representation from a broad cross-section of the CAB`s geographical area. The Washoe County Commission strives to ensure that all major viewpoints are examined, and that any faction or special interest group does not dominate a CAB.

Members are appointed by the Commissioners for staggered two-year terms beginning July 1 until June 30 two years hence. Unexpired vacancies are filled from the date of appointment until expiration of the unfilled term.

It is the general policy of the Commissioners that Citizen Advisory Board members be appointed for one two-year term to ensure the fullest participation by a broad range of citizens in a neighborhood. However, considerations of continuity may allow for reappointment of a member to a second or third (in special cases) consecutive term. If there are no other qualified applicants, a CAB member may serve a fourth consecutive term at the discretion of the Commission. A member may not serve more than four consecutive terms on a CAB.
