Help shape our city — apply for openings on Minneapolis boards and commissions
Applications are now being accepted for a number of open boards and commissions positions that the City Council and mayor will appoint this fall. Board and commission members in the City of Minneapolis provide valuable insights, help shape key policy decisions and provide community-based input into administration of services. The City is seeking applicants with a diversity of backgrounds and experiences to strengthen the work of the City.
Applications will be reviewed beginning April 29. The positions will stay open until filled. There are 55 open positions on the following nine City boards and commissions:

Visit the City’s website for a list of appointment opportunities, position descriptions and the applications.
The City of Minneapolis has more than 50 volunteer-based boards, commissions and advisory committees that advise the City on issues and help with policy development and administration of services. Boards and commissions fall into a handful of categories: appeal boards, development boards, general advisory boards, and special service districts, which are defined areas within the city where special services are rendered.
Appointments to board and commissions are made twice a year — in the spring and fall.
This streamlined appointment process makes it easier for folks to learn about volunteer opportunities, ensures a more open and understandable process for residents and staff, and increases the diversity of the applicant pool.
