The City of Alexandria has a strong commitment to citizen participation as evidenced by the number of citizen boards and commissions established by City Council. These bodies compose a formal system through which citizens can advise City Council on all major issues affecting the City.
Boards and Commissions are responsible to City Council and appointments are made by Council at the first legislative meeting of the month. Position vacancies are advertised through ENews, the City's cable television channel and on the City's website. All applicants must complete a Personal Data Record Form (found below). For further information, call the Office of the City Clerk and Clerk of Council at 703 746-4550.
