(Nationwide/Statewide Opportunity)

Local Board Member

Local Boards Members are nominated by the state governor or equivalent officials and appointed by the Director of the Selective Service System on behalf of the President.

Local Board Members play an important community role closely connected with our nation’s defense. In the event of a draft, approximately 2,000 Selective Service local boards would decide which registrants in their respective communities receive deferments, postponements, and/or exemptions based upon established criteria.

In addition to Local Boards, volunteers serve on District Appeals Boards and the National Appeals Board.

Requirements

In order to meet the minimum requirements for serving as a Local Board Member, you must be at least 18 years of age and a U.S. citizen who registered with Selective Service, if male. Further, you must not work in law enforcement (e.g. police officer or judge), must not be an active or retired career member of the Armed Forces, Reserves, and/or National Guard, and must not have been convicted of any criminal offense.

If you are interested in serving and meet the requirements above, please submit your information on our website at https://www.sss.gov/Volunteers/Request-Info

A citizen can be a volunteer to be a Local Board Member for the Selective Service System (SSS). SSS Local Board Members are part of a group of citizen volunteers whose mission, upon a draft, will be to decide who among the registrants in their community will receive deferments, postponements, or exemptions from military service based on the individual registrant's circumstances and beliefs.
