Natick’s Health Department is looking to fill 2 community at-large spots on the Natick 180 Steering Committee, while separately, the Conservation Commission is seeking applicants interested in serving on the Natick Trails and Forest Stewardship Committee.
While the types of openings appear on the surface to be quite different, creative minds might also find crossover between the 2 groups in need of volunteers in that they are in a broad sense both concerned with public health.
Natick 180 is a community coalition that addresses factors that contribute to addiction and builds up the community characteristics that protect against it. Filling community at-large openings will help to bring more perspectives to the group.
Candidates must live or work in Natick, and priority will be given to individuals who are in recovery from substance use disorder or who have otherwise been personally impacted by substance use.
Steering Committee meetings typically occur on the first Wednesday of each month 8:30-10AM. An additional 1-3 hours might be requested some months to address email communications, attendance at special events, and/or volunteer support at coalition activities.
How to apply:Candidates should submit a letter of interest to Katie Sugarman, Prevention & Outreach Program Manager, Natick Health Department. Letters can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the Natick Health Department, 13 E. Central Street, Natick, MA 01760. There’s a rolling deadline until positions are filled.
The Natick Trails and Forest Stewardship Committee consists of nine members who are residents of the town and have an interest in Natick’s trail and open space system and/or related skills or experience. There will be one vacancy starting in September.
Interested parties should apply online and click the “Apply” button. For more information or questions please contact the Conservation Commission at (508) 647-6452.
