Happening now: 

The Realignment Working Group (RWG) will be presenting its Board Member Experience Survey findings to the Boards and Commissions Committee on November 14 at 1:00 p.m. Here is a link to the presentation with the findings. Want to learn more or get involved? More information can be found on the Realignment of Boards and Commissions project page.


Board Member Update(s):

To better connect City Advisory Boards to City Council, we are asking that the Advisory Board Chair (or member representative) provide an annual update to a Council Committee. This could be an opportunity to update Council members on the work being done and on any milestones for the Board.

The Clerk's Office is coordinating with Advisory Board Chairs to schedule an update on a Council Committee agenda. Stay tuned!


Update: Hybrid Meetings:

At the June 20 meeting, the Equity and Engagement Committee voted unanimously to move all Board and Commission meetings (except for Quasi-Judicial boards) to a hybrid meeting format.  Once implemented, members and the public can participate in committee meetings virtually and in person.  


The Communications and Public Engagement Department is working with the Clerk’s Office to assess the next steps. Updates will be posted here and sent out as they become available.
