Apply for openings on Minneapolis boards and commissions

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. Applications are now being accepted for openings on a number of open boards and commissions positions that the City Council and Mayor will appoint this fall. The City is seeking applicants with a diversity of backgrounds and experiences to strengthen the work of the City.

There are 112 open positions on 14 City boards/commission. Applications will be reviewed beginning October 4th, 2010, however the positions are open until filled. For a full list of appointment opportunities and position descriptions as well as additional information visit the boards and commissions website.

To learn more about a particular open position or board/commission please join us in an online chat or visit our open house.

Online chat:

An online chat is also scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 21 from noon to 1 p.m. to answer questions about board and commission openings.

Open house:

People who want to learn more about these volunteer opportunities are encouraged to attend an open house set for Thursday, Sept. 23 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in City Hall Rotunda at 350 South 5th Street.

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.

Previously, appointments were made on an as-needed basis throughout the year. Now, appointments to board and commissions will be made twice a year — in the spring and fall.

The new, streamlined appointment process will make it easier for folks to learn about volunteer opportunities, ensure a more open and understandable process for residents and staff, and increase the diversity of the applicant pool.
