If you want to become more involved with city initiatives, you may want to think about joining a local board or committee.
Doing so allows a person to get involved with the Prince George community in a meaningful way and may even be able to advise city council.
Today (Feb. 16), city officials are making a call for candidates across four boards and committees, including, for the first time, the Tourism Prince George Society Board of Directors.
The open positions are listed below:
Tourism Prince George Society Board of Directors – Two vacancies
The Board meets six times annually and is responsible for establishing the strategic direction for Tourism Prince George in order to best achieve its goals related to the promotion and marketing of Prince George to visitors.
To date, city council has approved appointments to the Tourism Prince George Board based on recommendations from Tourism Prince George.
This is the first time Council has invited applications from the general public in order to be consistent with the recruitment practices of all other city committees and boards.
Prince George Public Library Board – One vacancy
The library board meets monthly and is responsible for the creation of policies, establishing goals and objectives of the library, and advocating for the library in the greater community.
Advisory Committee on Accessibility – Four vacancies
This committee meets monthly and is responsible for providing advice to city council and soliciting feedback from the community on matters that affect persons with disabilities, seniors, and those with access challenges, including identification, removal, and prevention of physical and social barriers.
Advisory Committee on Development Design – Four vacancies
