Opportunities to Support Your Community

Make a difference in our community

We are seeking to fill a board vacancy representing the low-income sector, an important volunteer position. Directors provide insight into community problem solving based on their knowledge and understanding of both the community and the sector they represent. They are responsive to community designated needs and participate in planning programmatic strategies as a part of a community action plan. Directors play an important role in helping people change their lives, impacting families and the community at large. The board meets minimally six times per year on the 2nd Friday of every other month at 10:30 am. Find more information about our board and board committees here

We encourage you to peruse our website and reach out if you have additional questions. Our current board members, Executive Director and staff would be happy to share.

The Private Sector representation shall be filled by officials or members of business, labor, religion, industry, human services, education, or other major groups and interests in the communities by submitting an inquiry on the web form below to the ATCAA Board Secretary at the ATCAA Service Center in Amador County.

In order to assure a fair and balanced representation of the private sector, organizations/businesses will be selected according to the following criteria:

  • Priority will be given to organization/businesses demonstrating a commitment to advancing the purposes and activities of the Board.

  • Priority will be given to organizations/businesses representing diverse views or a wide scope of labor, business, or social service interests.

  • Priority will be given to finding social service, business, or labor organizations/businesses representatives whose constituency is not currently represented on the Board.

Low Income Sector Representative

A candidate for the low income sector vacancy need not himself/herself be low income and/or economically disadvantaged, but must truly represent low income and must reside in Tuolumne or Amador County. Representatives of the low-income sector will be selected in a democratic selection procedure to assure that these members are representative of the low-income neighborhood served; reside in the neighborhood served; and are able to participate actively in the development, planning, implementation, and evaluation of ATCAA programs.
