All members are asked to be committed to the development and enhancement of human services in San Marcos. Members are appointed to two-year staggered terms, with four places expiring September 30 of odd-numbered years and with four expiring September 30 of even numbered years.

The board meets the second Tuesday of each month and weekly during the application review period of March and April.
