Community representatives voice the diverse needs and concerns of Charleston County residents within the CJCC. Representatives attend and participate in CJCC monthly meetings, gather and share community input, and provide voice and feedback from the community in the CJCC decision-making process. Community representatives are selected annually through an open call for applications. Representation is intended to be diverse and reflective of the community served, including representation from the following local communities:
Community Representatives provide representation at CJCC meetings for a period of two years in staggered terms, with no more than two consecutive terms.
In July in odd years, the Community Representatives elect one current Community Representative to serve as a ‘Community Representative Vice-Chair’ on the Executive Committee. Upon approval, this person will have full voting authority on behalf of the Community Representatives and share the same duties and rights as other officers of the Executive Committee.
Hear community representatives share why they encourage applying to serve on the CJCC.
