Council Member's Message

The City of Minneapolis has over 50 advisory boards and commissions, whose members help shape City policy and legislation. Appointments to these groups are made twice a year, with the Fall applications due on October 5. See the story below for more information about current openings and some deeper background about one of the advisory committees, provided by Community Environmental Advisory Committee (CEAC) representative and Ward One resident Michelle Shaw. 

I'm always impressed by the number of Ward One residents who are ready and willing to serve on the City of Minneapolis' many advisory boards and commission. When openings arise, it's not unusual to receive applications from multiple Ward One candidates, all bringing impressive talents and a range of backgrounds and achievements.

As a city we are always seeking to broaden the diversity of the membership of our advisory boards and commissions to better reflect our population. I urge all of you to consider serving on one of these groups and to encourage others to apply as well. Visit minneapolismn.gov/boards/openings to learn more.
