QAC Implements New Management System To Attract More Applicants to Boards and Commissions
Queen Anne’s County has implemented OnBoard, a board and committee management system County officials say will save time, money and attract more applicants to serve on citizen advisory bodies.
The new system, OnBoard, one of ClerkBase’s suite of open government solutions, allows County staff to update contact information for board members, track membership, print board books, create mailing lists, run term expiration reports, and much more.
OnBoard provides County staff with the ability to easily make updates to contact information; track membership over time and across boards; create mailing lists, labels and mail merges; store mail, email and phone numbers for each member and generate reports related to upcoming vacancies. The Applications add-on module will replace the previous process of emailing or mailing letters of interest and resumes for consideration.
“OnBoard was selected to assist in our digital transformation efforts by bringing our County’s Boards and Commissions information to a transparent, easy-to-use platform,” said County Administrator Todd Mohn. “Residents can view general information, vacant seats, and apply online.”
“OnBoard improves board management and makes it more efficient in terms of money spent and time saved,” says ClerkBase President Jay Rosenfield. “Queen Anne’s County and other local governments across the country have discovered that board management can be improved with the right tool.”
Queen Anne’s County is continually seeking volunteers to serve on various boards and commissions. Residents with an interest in serving on a board or commission can now use the online application form supported by OnBoard, https://onboard.qac.org/ or by going to qac.org and selecting a specific Board or Commission.
