Working Effectively with Citizen Advisory Boards and Committees

Friday, October 25, 2019

One of the most common and substantive ways citizen participation in local government occurs is through service on appointed advisory boards (CABs) (also sometimes called committees, commissions or task forces). While some CABs are statutorily mandated, most are created at the discretion of governing boards in order to provide community input for various local government functions. This one-day workshop explores promising practices of non-mandated, local government citizen advisory boards. Participants will learn about important nuts-and-bolts, including clarifying roles and expectations; recruiting, appointing, and training volunteers; staffing and managing committee work; and evaluating CAB effectiveness.
