Boards, Commissions and Committees

Raleigh citizens have the opportunity to volunteer their services to the City without pay on various boards, commissions and committees. Some of these are established in the City Charter; others are set up by the Mayor or City Council to perform special, limited functions.

Where not specified by law, the City has the policy to appoint citizens to serve two-year terms with a maximum of six consecutive years of service on any specific board or commission. Citizens may serve on no more than two commissions, boards or committees at one time.

There are two different types of boards, commissions and committees citizens can be appointed to. Some are appointed entirely by City officials, and the rest are jointly appointed by the City and other organizations.
