Boards and Commissions

The Annual Appointment process for all city Boards and Commissions opened Monday, November 1, 2021.  Board members who are currently serving and whose first term is expiring in February are asked to reapply.  Boards who currently have full membership will show No Vacancies, however the applications are being accepted for when the vacancies occur in February.  Applications will remain open until December 15th.  At that time, applications will be pulled and the Mayor and Council will begin reviewing the applications for making recommendations and appointments in January and February.  New terms begin in March, 2022.

When you are ready to apply, please click the Apply button in the top right hand corner of the page.  If you have started an application and stop before completing it, please use the link that is emailed you to complete the application at a later time.

If you are already serving on a board, and wish to reapply, you are already in the system and must use a link that is sent to your email.  If you have not received a link, and have checked your spam, please enter your email address in a new application and a new link will be sent to you.

    • General Information: Some boards currently have vacancies which are available for instant filling.  Those boards will show a vacancy in the Board Details Tab, and will be listed in the Vacancies Tab. These vacancies are being filled outside of the annual application process, and appointment may be made earlier than February.

    • Board details, including description, staff liaison and bylaws, along with the Member Roster for each board are available by clicking on Boards and choosing the board you are interested in. Board Details are given for each Board.

    • Appointments are made by recommendation of the Mayor, and approval of the Council in February, or as needed during the year.

    • Each regular term begins March 1 for all new and reappointed members.  Terms are usually two-year terms and are staggered on each board so that a board always has experienced members.

    • During the year, applications may only be submitted for a board if there is a vacancy on that board. Those vacancies are listed on the Vacancies Tab and applications are only available for those boards.

    • If an application is submitted, and you are not appointed, your application will be kept on file for a year in case any vacancies occur. You will be contacted if your application is chosen for appointment.

    • Most Boards require you to be a Georgetown resident, or reside in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction, unless the ordinance or law creating the board or commission states otherwise. Some boards seek to have certain areas of expertise, i.e. Animal Shelter Advisory Board seeks local veterinarians.  The requirements for each board are listed in the Details Tab, and on the application.
