Better Your Community by Serving on a City or State Board of Commission

Jan 30, 2019

There's power in the voices of the business community and our members! Amplify your voice by serving on a city or state board or commission. This is the perfect opportunity for passionate community members to see direct results from their volunteer time. In 2018, a number of our members were successful in joining influential boards and commissions at the state and local level.

All Iowa residents are eligible to apply for a state board or commission. Positions range from the Iowa Workforce Development Board, to the Technology Advisory Council to the Transportation Commission and many others. See the full list of State positions at https://openup.iowa.gov.

There are opportunities for local city residents too, and Economic Alliance members span multiple municipalities. City opportunities can be found directly on the your respective city's website.

Public Policy Strategist Barbra Solberg can provide guidance for both city and state positions, reach out to her at bsolberg@cedarrapids.org if you would like to apply or have any questions.
