PORT TOWNSEND — Washington State Parks and the Fort Worden Lifelong Learning Center Public Development Authority are accepting applications for a citizen member on the Fort Worden Coordinating Committee.

The committee will review and monitor the operation and co-management of the campus portion of Fort Worden, as well as make financial and policy recommendations.

Obligations to panel

This is a volunteer, uncompensated position. It is for a two-year term.

The member will be obligated to attend a minimum of four quarterly meetings held in the Port Townsend area.
