Volunteers needed for City/County Boards and Commissions

The City of Hendersonville is in urgent need for volunteers to serve on its many boards and commissions that seek citizen input for City departments and City Council members.  Such Boards typically require only an hour or two of time per month, and almost all are meeting via Zoom at this time.  

Check out the various 11 City Boards at:  https://www.hendersonvillenc.gov/boards-and-commissions. A link to apply is on this page, as well.

Various openings on County Boards also exist.  You can research these at: https://www.hendersoncountync.gov/ces/page/boards-and-committees.
