Volunteer Opportunity: Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District

The regional greenbelt system near San Francisco Bay is seeking a volunteer Ombudsperson to assist residents in their interactions with the District and facilitates conflict resolution when needed. The District Ombuds is appointed by the Board of Directors and to work independently and provide objective upward feedback when appropriate.

Applicants should have facilitation and conflict resolution skills; familiarity with the District mission and purpose; and knowledge of land and property use issues. This is a one-year, part-time, unpaid position. Expenses incurred in the course of business will be fully reimbursed. District volunteers are covered by Workers’ Compensation insurance. Application deadline is August 22. (MROSD.)

Although the position is precluded from "issues that are privileged or confidential, or which involve personnel, labor relations, legal matters, or Board decisions," this may still be an attractive opportunity to gain relevant work experience with an Ombuds title.
