Interested individuals can learn more about the responsibilities of the position by viewing our Council Policy Statement Handbook; Appendice C:  Boards, Commissions, & Committees.

You must complete an application which can be found online at www.parkridge.us.  In the upper left search field, type: application board to access an on-line, fill-in form. Or, you can obtain a hard-copy application in the foyer at City Hall.  Applicants are encouraged to review past Board or Commission minutes to better understand the business that is conducted. However, this is not a requirement.  

Applications should be returned to Deputy Clerk Peterson at cpeterso@parkridge.us or by fax, 847/318-5300 by April 1.  You will be contacted to meet with the Mayor’s Advisory Board for a brief interview to discuss your interests and qualifications.  The Board makes recommendations to the Mayor for appointments of candidates they believe are qualified.  A non-fingerprint criminal background check is required for all individuals recommended for appointment.    

Volunteers are an essential part of and a precious resource in our great City.  By donating your time and talent, you are contributing to the spirit of volunteerism within the community, making Park Ridge a better place to live and work.
