Do you want to be a city leader or want more say in the way Brooklyn Park is run? Why not volunteer on a city commission?

The City is recruiting folks to fill upcoming openings on its commissions. No experience is necessary. Applications for the annual recruitment are being accepted through January 31, 2018.
Having community members more involved is part of our long-range goal of making sure we always practice inclusive, good government.

Why should you take action and apply?

  • Use unique skills that you don’t use in your current job: being a commissioner takes time management and communications skills. But it takes other specialized skills as well. Do you have a special skill you don’t use in your day job but would like to? Why not use those special skills and help your community by joining a commission?
  • Creative thinking: every community vies for attention. In order to attract attention, creative thinking is involved. Being a part of a strategic planning initiative or a city project exercises your ability to think creatively.
  • Sense of belonging: having ties to your community and your neighbors really makes a new home and culture a lot more welcoming and provides a sense of belonging. It also does wonders for unifying our awesome community!

Of course, don’t just do it because it looks good on your resume, do it because YOU want to make a difference in Brooklyn Park and enhance your skills at the same time.
