Interested in expanding your civic involvement?

Apply to be a Municipal Board or Commission Member!

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

City and Borough of Anchorage

Mayor Berkowitz is currently looking for concerned citizens who are willing to take part in our municipal government process, and help make our community an even better place to live.

Each October, approximately one third (about 150) of the seats on municipal boards and commissions are appointed. Nearly all appointments are made for between a one and three year-term, and time commitments vary depending on each particular Board or Commission. Click here for a list of the available options.

Throughout the year vacancies occur on many of our boards and commissions. Applications are kept on hand as a resource for those vacancies. You may apply at any time.

If you are interested in serving on a board or commission, I encourage you to send a brief letter and resume to the Mayor's office, or call 343-7100. You may click here for an application, which you can print, fill out and return by mail, fax or email to:

Ona Brause
Deputy Chief of Staff
Office of Mayor Ethan Berkowitz
Municipality of Anchorage
PO Box 196650
Anchorage, Alaska 99519-6650
V: (907) 343-7100
F: (907) 343-7180 

Shortly after your application reaches the Mayor's office, someone on his staff will send you confirmation that it has been received. Your application will be carefully reviewed and kept on hand for openings that become available on the board or commission you are interested in. They will keep your application in our active file for one year.

The Mayor selects most appointments to municipal boards and commissions. His selections are forwarded to the Assembly for confirmation. Members of a few boards and commissions can be elected or, in some cases, are selected by the Assembly.

Before your name is submitted to the Assembly for appointment, a staff member will call you to make sure that you are still interested and available to serve.

I’m Berta and I’m still listening,

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact my office.
