We know how important it is to have a seat at the table to share your voice in the issues that matter to you. Getting involved in local government is one way to do that. The City of Beaverton is currently recruiting for openings on its boards and commissions. With a variety of boards and commissions catering to a wide range of interests, including human rights, the arts, social services, diversity, urban renewal, libraries, city budgeting, community involvement, traffic, land use, bicycles and more, there are many options for participation.
Beaverton’s boards and commissions play a critical role in supporting city functions and advising the Council and Mayor on a variety of issues and topics. All are essential to incorporating the community’s voice in city decision-making. It’s not all feedback-focused though; their creativity has also produced beloved Beaverton programs and events such as the “Library of Things,” and the annual Bike Beaverton and Beaverton Night Market events.
Volunteer To Be A Part Of The Social Services Funding Committee
Do you care about how social services are provided to Beaverton residents most in need? Do you want to directly impact how more than $250,000 of City of Beaverton funding is spent? The Social Services Funding Committee (SSFC) that reviews grant applications and makes recommendations to the City Council on an annual basis is looking for new members.
SSFC board members serve three year terms. Several meetings are held in the spring during the evaluation of grant applications, as well as on the second Wednesday of every other month during the rest of the year.
