Citizen participation at all levels of the governmental process is valued and encouraged. One way to get involved is through service on a volunteer board. The City of Grand Junction has 18 boards, committees, commissions and authorities on which over 100 citizens serve. Generally, the terms board, committee, commission and authority are synonymous, however, there are a few differences in the functions and powers of some boards.
Some of the City's boards require city residency but there are several that do not. There may be other qualifications required for membership on some boards but for the most part, the volunteer boards have a cross-section of community members willing to give of their time and particular talents.
Upcoming vacancies on the various boards are advertised in the Daily Sentinel and on this website. You may apply to serve on a volunteer board by sending a letter of interest, a completed application, and brief resume addressed to the Grand Junction City Council, c/o the City Clerk, 250 N. 5th Street, Grand Junction, CO 81501. The City Council reviews the applications and determines whether an interview session is appropriate. You will be contacted and kept informed of the process as it occurs.
If you have any questions on volunteer boards, please contact the City Clerk at 244-1511 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
