A great way to get involved and help your community is to volunteer your time and skills by serving on one of our citizen advisory bodies. Serving on one of the City commissions, boards or committees can be a fascinating and rewarding experience. Let’s listen hear from citizens who are on the Boards and Commissions and find out why they volunteer. Apply or find out more by visiting www.everettwa.gov/boardsandcommissions.
