Two New Commissioners Join the Board of MCCS
February 2nd, 2018
Augusta, ME -- The Maine Commission for Community Service is pleased to announce the two most recent Commissioner appointments made by the Governor to the MCCS board. Both are representing the State's volunteer community.
A resident of Augusta, Jamie Logan works as a communications consultant with Serra Public Affairs. In the past, she has worked at the Maine Legislature as a legislative aide and communications director.
Jamie is a graduate of the Catholic University of America, and before returning home to Maine she served for a year as an Americorps volunteer working with the Glenmary Home Missioners in Kentucky.
She currently volunteers with the Kennebec Historical Society and has also volunteered with the Literacy Volunteers of Augusta as a tutor.
In October 1994, twenty-five citizens were appointed by Governor McKernan to serve as the inaugural Commission members. Since then, each Governor has appointed an average of nine people each year to fill naturally occurring vacancies on the board.
Commissioner terms of service are three years with an option for re-appointment. The Commissioners are a diverse, bipartisan group of citizens, actively engaged in community service, and represent every region of the state. They elect officers from their membership and the officers serve two-year terms.
The seats on the board are designated in statute such that each person represents at least one facet of the community volunteer service sector.
