Clark County is accepting applications through Wednesday for 15 seats on an advocacy board for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
The Asian-American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) Community Commission serves as a liaison between the AAPI community and county lawmakers.
The volunteer commission meets monthly and appointed members will serve two-year terms.
The board was created in 1995 through legislation introduced by the late former Assemblywoman Gene Segerblom, the mother of county Commissioner Tick Segerblom. The special council expired after a year.
Championed by Tick Segerblom, it was revived in 2019 for two years. County lawmakers last month voted to lift its expiration.
Applications, which can be found at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov, and supporting documents are due by 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Completed paperwork may be emailed to Katie Walpole at Kathleen.Walpole@ClarkCountyNV.gov, or delivered to: County Manager’s Office, 6th Floor, Clark County Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas.
