Social Services Advisory Board

About the Social Services Advisory Board

In October, 2015, the Social Services Administrative Board was transitioned to the Social Services Advisory Board. Pursuant to Section 63.2-302 of the Code of Virginia, the Orange County Board of Supervisors appointed the County Administrator as the local Board of Social Services and created the Social Services Advisory Board. The local Board is responsible for the oversight of the Orange County Department of Social Services. Members are appointed to serve in an advisory capacity, having all the powers and responsibilities contained in the Code of Virginia.
