The Selective Service System is looking for people in the State of Colorado that might be willing to serve as members of local boards. Local Board Members are uncompensated volunteers who play an important community role closely connected with our Nation's defense. If a military draft becomes necessary, approximately 2,000 Local and Appeal Boards throughout America would decide which young men in each community receive deferments, postponements or exemptions from military service, based on federal guidelines.
To ensure that conscription is fair and equitable, it is important that all members of the community are represented. Therefore we ask for your help in finding qualified individuals who will safeguard that process.
Prospective Board Members must be citizens of the United States, at least 18 years old, registered with the Selective Service if required to do so, not an employee of any law enforcement occupation, not be an active or retired member of the Armed Forces and not have been convicted for any criminal offense. Once identified as qualified candidates for appointment, they are recommended by the Colorado governor and appointed by the Director of Selective Service, who acts on behalf of the President in making the appointments. Each new member receives 2 hours of initial training after appointment, followed by online annual training for as long as he or she remains in the position. They may serve in Board Member positions up to a total of 20 years, if desired.
If you believe you or someone you know meets the standards of Selective Service Board Membership, and wish to be considered for this presidential appointment, please visit the Selective Service web site at www.sss.gov. Click on the link entitled, "VOLUNTEERS" then "Board Member Program."
