City recognizes boards and commissions volunteers

DigiPen Institute of Technology played host to the City of Redmond for the recent City Boards and Commissions Appreciation Reception held March 20.

This annual event recognizes the hard work and contributions of board and commission members who volunteer their time and talents in support of the city.

"Citizen volunteers are one of our city's most valuable assets," said Mayor John Marchione. "By participating on local boards and commissions, they make an important contribution to our future by providing input and making recommendations on various programs and issues. These groups represent the community's voice and influence public policy and programming decisions that impact the entire city."

The City of Redmond thanks all of its Boards and Commissions volunteers for their time and dedication: Arts & Culture Commission; Civil Service Commission; Design Review Board; Redmond Disability Board; Human Services Commission; Landmark Commission; Library Board of Trustees; Parks and Trails Commission and Planning Commission.

Board and commission members generally serve as unpaid volunteers, but the rewards can be gratifying: members meet other residents with similar interests. They learn about the city and help shape the future of Redmond. Being on a board or commission does require a significant personal commitment, however, so applicants should consider their ability to commit their time and personal energy before applying.

To find out more about a specific board or commission, visit their individual web pages located on the city website at www.redmond.gov. Board and commission meetings are open to the public, so potential applicants are encouraged to sit in on monthly meetings. Meeting dates, times and locations vary and are available on individual web pages.
