Serving on a federal/state/county/city board or commission is an excellent way to serve your community. It provides an opportunity to have a voice in decision making and to serve as a bridge between government and the community ensuring oversight and raising awareness of important community issues.

These positions come with high accountability and responsibility. This course will provide instruction on the governance of government boards & commissions, explain special rules on ethics, conflict of interest, conduct and parliamentary proceedings and end with an overview of the appointment process. Leadership attributes of effective participation will also be covered.
