I previously served on a commission, and it is a wonderful way to learn more about the town, help connect your friends and neighbors with what is going on, and to help improve the town.

You don't need any specific knowledge or training, or even to "know someone" at the town - I applied, interviewed, and was appointed without knowing a soul.

I strongly encourage folks with an interest in any of the commissions to apply!
