Volunteer on a City Board, Committee, or Commission

Do you have knowledge or expertise in an area that could benefit your local government? If so, consider serving on a City board, committee, or commission (BCC) created by Tucson’s Mayor and City Council to help their decision-making process.

Appointments are available for individuals with an interest in helping develop low-cost housing, identifying issues important to supporting education, reviewing fire code amendments, planning community programs in the field of human relations, and advising City departments related to the planning, design, and implementation of programs and services. These are just some of the important topics for volunteers to bring expertise and community information to impact the direction and operations of city government.

BCC members serve without pay and must be residents of Tucson. Terms are usually for four years, and meeting attendance and participation are crucial. BCC members are appointed by the mayor or a council member.
