Fairfax County offers its residents many opportunities to serve the community. Citizen participation in local government is essential. Local government is the form of government closest to us in our everyday lives and the one we are most able to influence. Advisory bodies play a very important role in county government. Additional information and a list of county BACs is available at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/bacs. If you are interested in serving on a county board, authority, commission, or committee ("BAC"), please contact our office at 703-560-6946 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be prepared to provide a current resume. Also, as indicated in the above link, members of some BACs must file financial disclosure statements upon appointment and annually thereafter.
