Richmond City Council is looking to fill more than 75 volunteer positions available on 16 different advisory committees.
Residents interested in serving their community in a volunteer capacity may apply before the Friday, Sept. 22 deadline.
“There are many opportunities for the public to have an impact on local government through Richmond’s long-standing committees,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie.
“Through volunteering one’s time and expertise on any of the city’s advisory bodies, valuable insight is given to addressing a variety of specific areas of civic importance such as the arts, culture, environment, agriculture, seniors, youth, and the economy.”
Those appointed to positions by city council would serve on the advisory body in a volunteer capacity – there is no remuneration for appointees.
Those interested are asked to submit their completed application form and resume by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 22.
Application forms are available online at Richmond.ca/CityHall/Council/Boards/Advisory. Printed copies are available at Richmond City Hall, 6911 No. 3 Rd.
