City Boards & Commissions

Each board or commission is an integral component of the City of Berkeley regardless of its size, or relative degree of sophistication, and complexity of issues. Some require more time, attention, and energy than others. All of them require a degree of service, responsibility, and integrity.

Citizens who wish to participate can speak with your council member and request where you would like to volunteer your service, or submit an application to the City Clerk to forward to your council member. Please make sure to note which board or commission you are interested in joining. All appointments are made an approved by the City Council during regular City Council meetings.
