The first meeting is anticipated to be held in mid-May after the board of directors has made all its appointments to the commission. The board of directors is currently accepting applications for Youth Commission members. Each board member will appoint three commissioners per district for a total of 21 youth commissioners. The deadline to submit applications is Friday, March 2, 2018.
