Share Your Experience and Talents

You have your own unique set of skills, knowledge, and experience. Sharing knowledge and experience can foster vision in others and strengthen personal relationships. 

When you share with others, it helps deepen your own knowledge and engrains what you know. New conversations and opportunities can arise just from that gesture, offering even more opportunities to grow. Volunteering on a City Advisory Committee provides a great opportunity to share!

Citizen Advisory Committees

While there may be many different reasons why an individual might want to join a citizen advisory board, our committee volunteers seem to all share the same interest in getting involved in both local politics and the issues facing their community.

Citizen advisory boards serve a number of purposes including allowing for an in-depth examination of issues. Also having volunteer citizens involved in the decision process, citizen advisory boards can act as a conduit to communicate the thoughts and ideas held by the community members to their local government officials. 

Recognizing the broad diversity that comprises our community, the goal of our citizen advisory committees is to recruit members from the full spectrum of the city with different backgrounds and experiences who may bring a broad range of ideas and expertise to public decision making. Doing so further enhances the deliberative nature of the local government. 

In addition to opportunities to share personal experiences to influence decisions on local issues, committee members may learn or improve their leadership skills and can be used as a way to obtain the first experience in politics and government. This affords citizens the opportunity to experience political life without having to run for office.
