The Orange County Board of Supervisors is seeking two health experts and one education specialist to fill openings on its Children and Families Commission.

The three openings on the nine-member board may be filled either by existing members or new applicants, according to the commission announcement.

A commissioner’s term is two years. Pay is $100 per month no matter how many meetings a board member attends.

The commission was founded in 1999 to allocate Orange County’s share of funds from a special statewide tax on tobacco. The money is used for education, health and child development programs for children to age 5 and their families.

Medical and education professionals have until 3 p.m. Feb. 6 to file applications and a resume, according to the announcement. Applications and more information are available online.
