Apply to be on a City Board, Commission or Committee

Mayor Soglin encourages City of Madison residents to volunteer to serve. There are over 50 standing committees and at least that many more ad hoc and subcommittees that are created to assist city staff, the Common Council and the Mayor in making decisions that affect the citizens of the city. Committee positions are open to City of Madison residents.

Are you interested in serving on a city committee?

It's as easy as 1 - 2 - 3

  1. View the listing of Boards, Commissions and Committees to look up the Current Vacancies.
  2. Select committees you would like to serve on. (Please check each committee's meeting schedule to ensure you would be able to attend.)
  3. Complete the application (MS Word) and email to Mayor's Office. Then electronically submit your Statement of Interests form.
    Please Note: Nominees for appointment to a city board, commission or committee must file a Statement of Interests form with the City Clerk's Office prior to his/her name being submitted to the Common Council.
    Once you've submitted your completed application, it will remain on file in the Mayor's Office and, as vacancies occur in your areas of interest, your application will be reviewed.
