February 16 Deadline for Delaware County Board Vacancies

Delaware County is seeking new board members for the Community Action Agency (one vacancy) and the Delaware County Drug & Alcohol Planning Council (three vacancies: an individual with a Criminal Justice background, a recovering person, and a student under 25).

Although the responsibilities and goals differ from one board to another, board members play a critical role in establishing oversight, defining the Board’s mission and vision, improving the Board’s focus and effectiveness, shaping the County’s culture, serving stakeholders, establishing and updating policies, setting goals, and measuring the Board’s performance based on those goals.

Delaware County encourages interested residents who can contribute their time, energy, and passion, to complete the brief online application.


The Community Action Agency (CAADC) mission is to assist residents to move toward economic self-sufficiency and to strengthen the community through innovative approaches to programs including housing, workforce development, energy conservation, social services and community and economic development.

CAADC is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation managed by a 15-member Board of Directors that equally represent the public, private, and client sectors.


Delaware County, as part of its participation in the Pennsylvania statewide prevention, intervention, and treatment program, is responsible for planning and evaluation of community drug and alcohol prevention, intervention, and treatment services. The purpose of the Drug & Alcohol Planning Council is to advise, review, evaluate, recommend, and advocate actions related to the delivery of alcohol and other drug prevention, intervention, and treatment services.

The Planning Council reviews and sanction an annual comprehensive alcohol and other drug prevention, intervention, and treatment plans to be submitted to Delaware County Council and Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs for approval.

The Planning Council has an odd number of members, between 11 and 15, approved by County Council for a three-year term. Each member must reside in Delaware County.


Interested individuals can visit DelcoPA.Gov/Board-Vacancies for more information and for an online application. Applications for both Boards will be accepted through 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 16, 2024.
