Edmonton’s civic boards recruit volunteer members
January 7, 2019

The City of Edmonton’s civic boards are recruiting volunteer members to provide direction and make decisions that impact Edmontonians. You are invited to bring your experience and passion to shape Edmonton’s future.

Nine boards are recruiting 22 new members to bring experience and share perspectives on accessibility, community and grant funding, Edmonton’s history, transit issues, assessment appeals, library services, combative sports, seniors housing, and women’s advocacy. For a full list of boards recruiting new members see edmonton.ca/boards .

Civic boards are diverse, independent and impartial—made up of dedicated Edmontonians with varied skills, backgrounds and experience. The deadline to apply is February 3, 2019.

Being a board member provides an opportunity to sharpen leadership and business skills and gain a broader understanding of municipal government processes. Time commitment varies depending on the board. Most boards have monthly meetings, with additional meetings throughout the year. Assistance is available to help with transportation and childcare expenses.

All volunteer positions are filled using an application process managed by the Office of the City Clerk. Applicants need to provide a resume and three letters of reference. Interested applicants can apply for a position on up to three boards but can serve on only one board at a time. The qualifications for new members vary from board to board and may change from year to year depending on the needs of the board.
