Boards and Commissions

Eugene's boards and commissions are citizen advisory groups that provide an invaluable service to our city by advising City Council and City staff on a wide variety of subjects and making policy recommendations. Recruitment and selection of members generally takes place from January through March each year. Please see below for two off-cycle openings:
