Thank you for your interest in serving your community!
Citizen participation in local government is the foundation of our democratic way of life. In El Paso, residents are encouraged to contribute their time, knowledge and experience to shaping the City's goals and policies by volunteering to service on a citizen advisory board and/or commission.
Appointed board and commission members are required to participate in local government issues through formal meetings, hearings and discussions. Each board is different and the amount of time a member devotes to his/her duty will vary. You can review all the boards and commissions by clicking here.
It is recommended that before you make this important commitment, carefully consider whether you have adequate free time to attend the meetings (i.e., conduct research, talk to current members, talk to city staff/elected officials).
Appointments are open to all residents of the City of El Paso and applicants will be sought from all segments of the community.
If interested, please fill out and submit the Interest Form below.
Interest forms will be placed on file with the City Clerk for a period of one year. When a position becomes available your information will be submitted for consideration.
Each board, commission and committee has governance with general provisions set forth in the El Paso Municipal Code.
When applying for an opening, certain personal disclosures may be required to ensure there are no conflicts of interest. All appointments must be approved by the City Council and submission of an Interest Form does not guarantee appointment.
There is no limit to the number of boards you can serve on; however, you must fill out separate applications and interest forms for each board or commission you are interested in.
You may tailor your submission to the specific board or commission for which your skills and abilities could best serve the citizens of El Paso (e.g., career experience, hobbies, familiarity with the board/commission)
