Get Involved in a Board, Commission or Committee

Volunteering on a board, commission or committee is a great way to share your ideas, expertise and enthusiasm with your local government. As a member, you will be able to provide advice to City Council and staff, and contribute to the development of policies, programs and initiatives that will help enhance Niagara Falls’ quality of life. Whatever your area of interest there may be a board, commission or committee that would benefit from your input and involvement.
