We're Better With Your Voice – Beaverton’s Boards & Commissions

Graphic with names of Beaverton's 16 boards and commissions.

Applications for 2020 are now closed. However, opportunities arise throughout the year for midterm appointments. If you would like to be considered for a midterm appointment, submit an online application below. Otherwise, your application will be held over for the 2021 formal recruitment period.

We know how important it is to have a seat at the table to share your voice in the matters that matter to you. Getting involved in local government is one way to do that. The City of Beaverton recruits annually for openings on its boards and commissions. With a variety of boards and commissions catering to a wide range of interests including human rights, the arts, social services, diversity, urban renewal, libraries, city budgeting, community involvement, traffic, land use, bicycles and more, there are many opportunities available.

Beaverton’s boards and commissions play a critical role in supporting city functions and advising the Council and Mayor on a variety of issues and topics. All are essential to incorporating the community’s voice in city decision-making. It’s not all feedback-focused though; their creativity has also produced beloved Beaverton programs and events such as the “Library of Things,” the annual Bike Beaverton event, and the annual Beaverton Night Markets.

You make the difference. We invite you to join us. Bring your perspective, ideas, and passion and apply today.
