Volunteering with Your Local Special District

Get Involved!

Run for a Board Position

Your community needs you!  They can’t operate without elected board members who are willing to volunteer their time and talents. Serving as a special district board member is a way you can truly make a difference directly for your community.

Joining a board not only helps you learn from the people around you, but also gives you the opportunity to share your knowledge and experiences with those same people. It is also a great way to gain experience in government and leadership that can translate into other potential career or political opportunities.

Join a Committee

Not ready to jump into a board member position? Then join a comittee. Many special districts have various committees that you can become a part of that give recommendations to the board of directors or commissioners. This is a great way to get your feet wet with volunteering for your district while supporting your community.

Volunteer for Events

Some districts have opportunities to volunteer time in a position such as a firefighter or first responder. Other districts offer chances to get involved at community events, at their facilities, etc. 

What Are You Waiting For?

Volunteering for local government gives you the chance to learn new things, meet people, and make a difference in the lives of others. Contact your local special district to learn about all the ways you can get involved.
