Getting Involved Header

Many citizens of San Antonio are dedicated to improving their community by participating in their government. At any one time, more than 700 volunteers may serve their municipal government on over 85 City boards and commissions. These boards and commissions advise City Council on issues such as parks and open space, convention and tourism, zoning, elderly affairs and more. Members of these boards are appointed by the City Council and may be appointed as a district representative or to an At-Large position.

Citizens who are interested in participating on a City board or commission may contact the Office of the City Clerk for more information. Applications may be submitted on-line at Vacancies on Boards & Commissions and are also available in the Office of the City Clerk on the second floor of City Hall, 100 Military Plaza.
