Membership in Boards & Commissions
City boards and commissions were established for the purpose of advising the City Council and providing ongoing input into policies and issues affecting the future of the San José community. All persons seeking membership on a board or commission must be San José residents and some commissions have additional membership requirements. Some applications will be reviewed and interviewed by the Council Appointment Advisory Commission. Applicants are appointed by the City Council. Members are usually appointed for a four-year term. All meetings are open to the public and copies of the agendas are available at least 7 days prior to any regularly scheduled meeting.
