Volunteer opportunities for faith community leaders: 

  • Invocations at Semimonthly Meetings:
    • This past year, the Board of Supervisors returned to the practice of having invocations at its semimonthly meetings.  The County Manager’s Office is responsible for scheduling pastors or faith leaders to deliver the invocations. Review the Guidelines For Invocations that Henrico County asks religious leaders to follow when delivering invocations to ensure the County is in compliance with applicable constitutional law.
    • Our Board of Supervisors generally meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Board Room of the Henrico County Government Center’s Administration Building (4301 East Parham Road).  The exceptions are the months of August and December, when the Board only meets on the second Tuesday, and the second Tuesday of March, when the meeting begins at 6:00 p.m.  Tanya Harding, Deputy Clerk to the Board of Supervisors, is the primary contact person and scheduler.  She can be reached at har66@henrico.us or 501-4436.
