Volunteers for committees

The city of Poughkeepsie is seeking volunteers to serve on the District’s Construction Committee.

In the last year the Marlboro School District has looked for community volunteers for one committee, the Audit Committee as per RESOLUTION #340-12-18-0 on Dec 12th 2008. It has taken our district 6 months to decide/appoint the community representative for the 2009-2010 School year. Three candidates submitted their application.
First there was the wait and see if anyone else applied. Then there was the “still looking into the candidates qualifications”, followed by “reinterviewing” candidates, continuing with “candidates not qualified/conflict of interests”, followed by “we’ll start the volunteer candidacy process again” to finally deciding on one of the three original candidates. So, it take 6 months to make a simple decision with three candidates, yet it takes little time to make hiring decisions with “hundreds” of applicants to open positions.
