Have a voice in City government!
Apply to be on a City board, commission or committee

Committees, commissions, and boards play a significant role in helping city staff, the Common Council and the Mayor in making decisions that affect the lives of Madison residents. The City of Madison values broad participation in these bodies and highly encourages people of color, persons with disabilities and members of other traditionally underrepresented groups to apply. Committee positions are open to City of Madison residents.

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 their 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.
