The city of San Marcos has scheduled an orientation for Tuesday at 4 p.m. at the San Marcos Conference  Center for the dozens of citizens appointed to serve on city boards and commissions. A reception will follow the session at 5:30 p.m.

At the orientation, the new board members will be instructed in Robert’s Rules of Order, the city’s ethics code and open meetings.

The reception will honor the citizens who volunteer for boards, task forces and commissions.
