Boards and Commissions

Naperville is an active community with a vibrant volunteer spirit. The volunteers who serve on City boards and commissions exemplify outstanding community involvement. Appointments are reserved for residents and made by the Mayor, with approval from the City Council, based on experience and interest. Boards and Commissions with available vacancies are listed on the right side of this page, but applications may be submitted for any board/commission even if there is not a current vacancy. To apply, click on the board or commission name to be taken to that particular webpage and click on the "Apply" button. 

Like any volunteer opportunity, serving as a board or commission member requires time and effort. Before completing an application to serve on a board or commission with the City of Naperville, applicants are encouraged to review the Boards and Commissions Guide to help assess which board/commission is a good fit and to make sure they understand the roles and responsibilities of the board/commission.
