Opening on the Central Health Board of Managers

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 by Katy McElroy

The Travis County Commissioners Court and city of Austin are looking to fill a seat on the leadership board of Central Health. Travis County and the city of Austin each appoint four members of the board. In addition, both entities jointly appoint a consensus candidate. The joint appointee will serve for an unexpired term set to expire on Dec. 31, 2020, as well as an additional full-length term that will run from Jan. 1, 2021, to Dec. 31, 2024. Serving on the board requires a minimum commitment of 10-15 hours a month. Most, but not all, of the meetings are held in the evenings. Members of the board also are assigned to subcommittees. Applicants are not required to have experience as a health care provider, but they must have a working understanding of the area’s health care system and be a resident of Travis County and the city of Austin. Interested persons can find the application packet here; the deadline to apply is Feb. 7.
