The same name – "Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board" (CSB) – refers to both:
- The local agency that provides services for people in Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church who have mental illness, substance use disorders, and/or intellectual or developmental disabilities.
- The 16-member administrative policy board that oversees the establishment and operation of these local services.
The CSB administrative policy board, which we refer to as the "CSB Board," normally meets at 5 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Merrifield Center, 8221 Willow Oaks Corporate Drive, Fairfax. Meetings are open to the public.
In addition to meeting each month at its regular full Board meeting, the CSB Board also has several committees and workgroups that meet either monthly or bimonthly. Ad Hoc Committees also meet at various times throughout the year. Standing committees of the Board are:
- Behavioral Health Oversight Committee
- Compliance Committee
- Developmental Disabilities Committee
- Executive Committee
- Fiscal Oversight Committee
Serving on the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board
Members of the CSB board are volunteers who are appointed by the City of Fairfax, the City of Falls Church, their county district supervisor or by the chair of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, Sharon Bulova. One member is appointed by the Fairfax County Sheriff. Board members may serve up to three terms consecutively, and each term lasts three years.
Two of the current vacancies on the CSB Board are At-Large appointments, and one is for the Springfield District. If you are interested in serving on the CSB Board, contact your Supervisor. Please be prepared to provide a current résumé.
