The Escambia County Board of County Commissioners is seeking Escambia County residents interested in volunteering to be considered for an appointment to two seats on the Escambia-Pensacola Human Relations Commission. The EPHRC was first established by an interlocal agreement between the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners and the city of Pensacola in April 1974. The purpose of the commission is to be responsible for the promotion of fair treatment and equal opportunity to all citizens of the local community. For this term, commission members, who are called commissioners, will serve an initial two-year term of office.
Commissioners will establish a schedule of regular meetings, which shall be held at least monthly. The commission meetings are held to discuss the previous month’s day-to-day activities and to ensure that the interlocal agreement between Escambia County, the city of Pensacola and the EPHRC are in compliance. Additional meetings may be held for special discussion, workshops, training sessions or community activities.
Escambia residents interested in serving on the Escambia-Pensacola Human Relations Commission are asked to submit a resume and letter indicating their desire to serve on the commission by the close of business Friday, August 2. Resumes should be submitted to Shamara Jernigan, Escambia County Board of County Commissioners, P.O. Box 1591, Pensacola, FL 32502, or emailed to BoardApply@myescambia.com .
Please note that resumes submitted for consideration are subject to public records requests and are included in Escambia County Commission meeting information, including the agenda and official meeting minutes.
