October Boards and Commissions Vacancies

The next selection meeting for city boards & commissions will be this Wednesday, October 17 at the Main Library.

The list of vacancies can be found on the City website.

There are still some openings.  Some highlights:

  • There are two openings on the Citizen Advisory Council, which is the board that interviews candidates for openings.  If you’d like to encourage people to serve on boards and commissions, and you live in Districts 2 or 5, this is a great board to join.
  • There are openings on some of what I would consider to be the most influential of the city’s boards.  If you live in D3, there’s (still) an opening on the Planning Board.  If you live in D4 or D5, there are openings on the Community Development Advisory Committee.  There are two openings on the Worcester Arts Council and the Historical Commission.
  • There are still openings on lots of the lesser-known boards that could always use people with passion; some examples: Cable Television Advisory Committee, Elder Affairs Commission, and Commission on Disability.  There are also two openings on the Hope Cemetery Commission.

Please consider applying for the boards that look most interesting…and get the word out to those you know.
