Beaufort County citizens have the opportunity to get involved and serve their community as several County Boards and Commissions currently have vacancies.

Beaufort County Boards and Commissions are Council-appointed volunteer opportunities for community members to share their expertise, input and ideas. The Boards and Commissions help County Council anticipate, fund and provide a cost-effective level of service.

Beaufort County’s population is expected to reach 216,000 within the next few years. That growth means increased demands on services, programs, infrastructure as well as the need for increased preservation and protection of the County’s natural resources and beauty.

Beaufort County Alcohol and Drug Abuse Board

Beaufort Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees

Construction Adjustments and Appeals Board
